Interesting site visit absolutely no bags or cell phones. No photos in the hangars which I thought was a bit strange because we saw a lot of 747 being assembled. The new Dreamliner we saw from a distance. It was good but a bit paranoid from a security perspective. Didn't see any secret new planes.

(This is another place I've visited beyond TA's year-ago limit, so be advised that things may have changed). A few years back we took by brother-in-law and family to see, and the exhibits were well done, airplanes as well as space. There is plenty to see. The admission for adults is around $20, seems a bit high, but per hour... More

This is a great museum that explains a lot about aviation and how it has progressed. Even if you know nothing about airplanes, there are plenty of signs and information that should interest even the most unimpressed guest. For me, this museum had an extensive display of WWI aircraft, which is usually forgotten due to the lack of actual airplanes... More

This is one of Seattle's best attractions! There's a lot to see here, so take your time. They are always adding new exhibits. There are several buildings to see, so wear comfortable shoes. In addition, there are several interactive activities and films to watch. Take your breaks in the cafeteria and watch planes take off from Boeing field. The gift... More

This is a great option for anyone but especially for cruise passengers looking for an activity before boarding their ship. It's close to the cruise pier and family friendly. If you live locally and have never been, make a plan to go.

Really good for all. Kid friendly. I would recommend it highly. Even the lunches were reasonable priced and tasty. Go you'll love it. Concord, air Force 1. Exciting.

This museum was down-to-earth and inviting. We spent several good hours here. It's family-friendly, and aimed at those without much knowledge of anything flight-related. When we were there in the summer, the coast guard had helicopters out in the parking lot and were doing talks.

The spruce goose is amazing , and there are lots of other aviation displays. The cafe there served a good lunch also. This is a very busy destination, so allow enough time to explore it all

The Museum of flight is massive, which makes sense, there are many very big aircraft to see there. It is possible to walk through the history of flight and admire the crafts and even sit in a few! There are wonderful docents around who have so much knowledge and enjoy a good conversation. It is also very possible to read... More
