Overview
More
Located approximately 25 miles north of Seattle, The Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Tour is the only public tour of a commercial jet assembly plant in North America. Explore the interactive exhibits and displays in our 28,000-square-foot Aviation Center Gallery; then take a 90-minute tour of the Boeing plant where you can watch 747s, 777s, or 787 Dreamliners being assembled right before your eyes. There is a minimum height requirement of 4 feet (122 cm) for children participating in the Boeing Tour. To avoid disappointment please make sure to check height before purchasing tickets. This restriction is strictly enforced. ADA accessible tours are offered twice daily. Call in advance to ensure proper accommodations. In the Future of Flight Aviation Center Gallery, the Family Zone is home to a number of different activities, all designed around a theme of aircraft manufacturing and assembly. Activity carts let visitors build a simple aircraft model, or use our Lego (and Lego-compatible) pieces to express new ideas about aircraft design. A kid-sized airport and aircraft allow future pilots of all ages to practice their take-offs and landings. Currently, the Family Zone is also home to a highly engaging, hands-on nanotechnology exhibit, and a Bernoulli Table, an exciting interactive experience that teaches the relationship between the velocity of air and the pressure it exerts. Coloring and reading activities are also available, and drop-ins are welcome. Admission is free for ticket holders and for Institute of Flight members.

We really enjoyed the tour. All the workers we encountered at the museum were friendly and helpful. I'd like to put a little shout-out to Amanda with the tour. We had a little snafu, and Amanda saved the day!!! She went above and beyond and...More

Our tour was large, 50+ people so sometimes hard to hear the guide but mostly he had a microphone. Our guide Christopher was fabulous. Mutton chops and sounded like an Irish brogue, though he said he grew up near Boeing. If you've done many tours,...More

Rare opportunity to see THE largest (by volume) building in the world from the inside, and watch as several brand-new Boeing planes (747, 777, 787, etc.) in various states of assembly. Easily one of the top must-see attractions in the greater Seattle area.

A major let down. This was something I had been wanting to do for years. You see very little activity. I was expecting to see planes being pieced together but there's no moving parts. A lot of talk and description but you don't get to...More

If you love planes, technology or engineering then this is a must visit. Lots of information and knowledge to observe and retain. Would be great if they also show an actual plane from inside while it is being built.

Great tour, full of Boeing facts, history of company and hints of what is to come. Be sure to allow time to look around after (or before) tour.

I took the tour during my 4 day visit to Edmonds,WA. I learned during the pre-show about the many companies/countries that Boeing delivers planes to. In the actual tour, I learned about the different types of airplanes and was given an overview of how they...More

Just a fascinating place to see the actual building of today's aircraft. We went on a Saturday so not much was going on but the sheer size of the building is mind blowing. Wish they would let you take cameras into the main tour but...More

We were quite impressed with the tour provided by "Tina". She was very knowledgeable, humorous and outgoing. Very interesting and exciting to tour the actual Boeing factory and learn in depth about the numerous stages in constructing a plane....truly amazing. Would definitely recommend this tour...More

Went specifically for Boeing Tour and it was great. Well organised, informative and the scale of the operation needs to be seen to be believed. The future of flight center however is largely disappointing, and I expected more. Quite bare on anything really and did...More

We were there on a Saturday morning and nobody was working. Weekdays are probably best if you want to see that, but it would be a lot noisier. I'm sure it's great anytime!
