    Become a member, get 15% off all your purchases, as well early access to tickets for the annual Hops and Props event which sells out quickly.

    The Museum of Flight is one of the largest, non-proft air and space museums in the world.

    This has the original Boeing workshop. There's a large area with planes ranging from their first mail planes through to jets. Around the corner is another hanger with aircraft from the two World Wars.

    Don't miss the space exhibit across the road and for kids try the tower to hear ATC chatter and watch planes takeoff/land.

    The WWI and WWII exhibit is the best. There is a small cafeteria for a quick bite and an interactive place of flight for smaller kids.

    Talk to the docents. There are some old retired Boeing engineers here that know everything there is to know about airplanes and space flight and history and they love to talk about it!
  • Paris B.
    Enjoyable museum. The docent-led tour of the WW1 and WW2 section was excellent. It's also fun to look through Air Force 1 and the original Boeing "Red Barn" Factory.

    Allow a huge amount of time if you love planes. Love all the stories built around the exhibits. Especially love the Concorde and Air Force One that you can walk through.

    The planes and space-related craft are awesome! It would be easy to spend 4-5 hours here. I couldn't see it all in 3 hours. Well worth the money!

    Tip: Head straight to the Space/NASA section, then see the actual planes.. then go back to see the rest of the museum.

    Start with the cockpit displays in the Great Gallery: great audio introductions to instrumentation and helpful for understanding other exhibits.

    If you are a museum member and use the secret password at the entrance, they'll let you fly an F/A-18. It's really cool and totally worth the membership!

    To travel from the Airport, take the train to Tukwilla Station and then bus 124. From Seattle downton take bus 24 which then becomes 124 when leaves the city. To travel back to the city, take the 124.

    They have a AAA discount. Make sure to check out the inside of the concorde (but it was a tight fit!)
