I liked it. Kids will love it. The last time I was there they had two planes out back you could get into and they ha a virtual reality ride. They tell a good bit of the history of Boing and of flight in general. I just wish they would talk about Mr. Boing more. He use to host the... More

I went here with a friend and we spent 4 hours and barely saw everything. My favorite parts were the Lunar Rover dune buggy , President Kennedy's Plane that Jackie had redecorated and still has the design in it she did, and the Concord SST. The history of Boeing Co. and the Space Shuttle exhibits are good too. Plan on... More

The first time I went here it was because my husband wanted to go. I wasn't all that enthusiastic about going but I'm sure glad I did. That was over 8 years ago and even though I've been to this museum several times, I always enjoy the experience. I loved learning about the evolution of the industry, especially locally. To... More

The Museum of Flight is fascinating for the layperson and the aviation buff. You can stroll through in an hour or spend the entire day. Around the 4th of July you can go for a ride in a B-17 or a B-29. Not cheap but a guaranteed thrill of a lifetime for your favorite WWII aficionado.

I recently finally made it here for the first time, taking a grandchild for his seventh birthday. I have little interest in aviation and had declined to visit for decades, a big mistake. I had a great time: the old airplanes are fun, but there is lots more to see and do than airplanes. Space exploration is a major part... More

We enjoyed the tour. The price for access was moderate, and the food average for the cost. The exhibits were great.

This is a great place for children of all ages. The expansion to include both WWI and WWII airplanes brings a whole new dimension. The sense of history is palpable. A must see for travelers and Seattlites!

The Museum of Flight next to Boeing field is a great place to see airplanes on display of course, but some of the other displays are very well done too. I especially enjoyed the old tooling exhibits in the Red Barn attached to the main part of the museum. A worthwhile way to spend an afternoon in the area south... More

This museum is the best for airplanes on display!! and nothing beats being right on the airfield and seeing the planes landing and taking off as well.
