This place is massive. It is very educational with just enough hands on fun stuff. They have tour guides that walk around and chat with you about the different exhibits.

We actually attended a private event at the museum, but we were super impressed with it even though there were only a couple wings open to us. There's great informational signage everywhere, and I recommend it for all kinds of visitors.

Boeing has been an integral part of the aircraft industry since its beginnings and it will help shape the future of it. To see how these massive aircrafts are created and the scope of the operation is mind-blowing. Worth the 45-50 mins from downtown Seattle.

We have been here many many times. If you like airplanes this is the place to go. They continue to expand and offer more things to see and do. The building with the shuttle trainer is impressive and has a nice collection of space related items. The two storey building with WWI on one floor and WWII on the other... More

This is a great air and space museum. I enjoyed the WW1 and WW2 galieries, very extensive collection of aircraft, several of which i had not seen before. The outside exhibit with the Super Connie and the old Air Force One that you can walk thru was very interesting. Highlight was the tour of the inside of the Space Shuttle... More

The price for an adult to visit is $20 as of spring 2016, and I was not hugely impressed with the collection. I don't mind paying to support a museum, but in comparison with other museums I have visited, this wasn't a great value. The WWI/WWII exhibits are too dark to permit easy photography without a flash, and it appeared... More

This is awesome - but not if you are a kiddo under 4 ft tall - just make note of that. Must be taller than 48 inches to do the tour. Amazing planes - amazing facility - fascinating how they put these together it is like a mini city. WOW

Our Air Cadet Squadron 396 RCACS took 20 youth to the museum of flight. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. It was both educational and interesting for all ages. Very well done. There truly is something for all ages here.

The museum is really interesting with a lots to see that could take you all day but you can easily see the highlights in a couple of hours. We fitted it in on our way back to the airport. We didn't get to see Concorde though as they were working on the airpark and it should be available from June... More

Hard to cover in a brief review. But if an aviation buff misses this place he or she will have missed a major member of the world of airplane history. From an SR-71 Blackbird to a walk through Concorde and 747 and rag wing tail draggers and warbirds - of all American wars where aircraft were involved - this place... More
