The Museum of Flight, Seattle
(4.7/5 based on 4,400+ reviews on the web)
Walk through the cabins of a British Airways Concorde and the “flying Oval Office” of four presidents at The Museum of Flight, the largest private air and space museum in the world. The museum's world-class collection of nearly 150 aircraft includes a B-17F Flying Fortress bomber, a Lockheed M-21 Blackbird, and a Lockheed model like the one Amelia Earhart piloted when she disappeared over the Pacific. Other highlights include the world's first fighter plane, built in 1914, and one of only two remaining airworthy Douglas DC-2s. Within the museum is the restored “Red Barn,” Boeing’s original manufacturing plant. To take advantage of discounts offered to returning visitors, consider purchasing a "return trip" ticket, valid for up to seven days.

  • We visited the museum on Veterans Day. It was awesome walking through the old planes in the hangar. The layout is really good and it was very informative. 
  • I really loved the factory tour and Museum. The airline assembly line was very interesting and well worth the short trip from downtown Seattle. 
  • Seattle is the home of Boeing, so the museum is rich in history that Fly-Folks like me won't find anywhere else. The resident SST, one of the most beautiful planes ever built, will give you goosebumps...  more »

  • Amazingly huge exhibition of everything that have wings! I really proud of this place, I visited it with my son, he is 5. You can find historical and modern aviation, space exhibit also. There are opportunities for kids: playground inside, interactive panels , simulators. I liked WW2 hall and enjoyed of outdoors exhibit with Concord, Boeing 787, 747, Blue Angels. Must see!!!
  • Amazingly entertaining! Everything you could want from a flight museum. I've come quite a few times throughout my life and it never gets old. The new hangar is phenomenal as well as some of the older exhibits. I will never not love this place.
  • The most comprehensive aerospace museum I've been to outside of Smithsonian. The full-scale real planes are the best treat. If you ever drooled over the idea of just walking up to a 787 at the airport, this is your place. Add to that a 747, Concorde, Constellation, and many others and you'll be in heaven. Surprisingly good space travel exhibit. All kinds of warbirds and civilian stuff. Free parking and easy freeway access a bonus. I've been twice and would go again for sure.
  • We spent two hours here and it wasn't enough! We had a great time. So much history and information packed in here, and a few flight simulators to make it really fun. Even the kids might have fun. And the gift shop! Whoa! I actually had to stop myself from spending more!
  • Very cool Museum, we spent a good 4 hours there but knowing my husband he could have spent more! We watched a cool IMAX movie on space, which was very interesting! Unfortunately all of the big plane exhibits were closed which was very disappointing, but I guess we will have to go back again soon!
