We went to visit the museum during a rainy day in Seattle (I know... it always rains there anyway). As a pilot I had a blast of course as the number of planes and things to see is impressive. If you want to have a good flavor for it plan at least 3 hours. All stands were great and actually... More

Very nice facilities, excellent staff and volunteers. Took advantage of the complimentary guided tours and volunteers at various points in the exhibition. We ended up spending almost five hours in the museum, it was with a lunch break though. We came by bus 124 and it was good.

This museum has been a disappointment for both of my grandchildren. They want to touch and sit in planes. You can only do that in three of the many planes. The kids play area always seems to have many exhibits that are out of order. The space part is also not kid accessible. I have found it a great disappoint... More

I have visited the M of F several it is quite amazing to be able to see side by side jets and Biplanes. reading the periodic panels is very interesting and a great deal of history is available. There was once a wedding under the wing of a jet. that was a strange sight.

Be sure to plan a few hours to visit this museum - there's a lot to take in! There are so many planes on display, and a few you can walk around in and explore. A really great place to plane buffs or anyone interested in the history of flight!

My son's class were doing presentations here, which allowed us to check it out. The history is amazing, and informative. There is a interactive area for children to explore, and climb, and play. There's much more than airplanes to learn about. The history of the area, land, rivers, and buildings, let's you "see" how far technology has evolved.

The original museum is great. Give your granddaughter your camera and let her snap away. When you take the bridge across the street you can walk thru the Concorde, Air force 1 and a 787 dreamliner.

My 5 and 8 year old boys loved our 3-hour visit to the museum. The especially liked climbing in and out of the various planes on display, as well as playing around in the air traffic control tower play area. We are moving to Seattle and bought a family membership since we can see ourselves spending many hours there in... More
