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.

  • Went to the museum with grandkids and daughter-in-law. Active duty military and family members got in free. Definitely not enough time to see the entire museum. There is a Walt Disney and world war.....  more

  • I absolutely recommend this place. If you're planning on visiting the museum be ready to spend at least 3 hours but if you can make it a day trip it will be so worth it. The history not only behind the airplanes but also the history and the life story of those who made it happen it's so amazing you can also find a lot of astronomy and space information. Price 4/5 $25 per person. No student discount. Place 5/5 Service 5/5 Time 3 or more hours.
  • One of the greatest experience in Seattle is to go and see the Museum of Flight. The place is a great collection of 175 aircraft and spacecrafts and many other things to see. You may spend from 2-5hours. I love everything here. It is a good place for family and children. Highly recommended for a visit. The place is with wheelchair parking and accessible
  • I came in on the first Thursday of the month, a free day for everyone. This museum is a must-to-go place for those into aircraft and spaceships. You have a chance to get into these aircraft and enjoy your journey along with the museum. You better visit this museum more than once to grasp the knowledge fully. I highly recommend it to anyone
  • Wow, what a place to view planes and history. The Disney exhibit during WW2 is phenomenal. Can easily spend half a day in here. Tons of period planes with historical connections. The outdoor pavilion has a bunch of very interesting jets available to tour. So much to see!
  • This is a must see. So many incredible aircraft and replicas. Everyone who came with us was pleasantly surprised. Probably the best value for any paid exhibit in the city. Very very happy we came here. If you have any interest in planes or space, it’s a MUST see. Will recommend to anyone visiting Seattle 10/10
