The museum has a rich and diverse range of aircraft from the civilian, military, space and experimental realms of aviation. For those of who may not be sold on viewing... More

Was extremely interesting to see all the different planes and learn about the histories of flight. A MUST visit for anyone interested in Aviation. If you like reading, you could easily spend the whole day here! Family friendly as well.

This museum was recently renovated. Wow. Wow. Wow. I went with my husband as it is an interest of his that he wanted to share with me. I was pleasantly surprised. My highlights included the history (well documented in an easy to read set up) in the Great Gallery with 39 full-size historic aircraft and the Aviation Pavilion wit 19... More

I expected the museum to be more interesting/didactic, there are not many rooms but it's ok if you haven't been in any other aviation museum.

Our family visited the Museum of Flight in Seattle, WA in late November. We had never been there before but had been told by many friends that it was a “must see” in the area. The museum is new buildings situated around the original workshop of the Boeing company. There are several different types of displays including a history of... More

Where to start...the staff is the best....so helpful and friendly with many great stories. My favorites were P-51 Mustang, President Nixon's AF One, SR-71 Blackbird, Spitfire, Blue Angels F-18, F-14 Tomcat, 787 Dreamliner and so many others. What a joy to visit and compare to our Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola. This is a must visit while in Sea-Tac.

Excellent museum, even has a new Boeing 787 Dream liner now! Still my favorite is the WWII exhibit. It is so well done you want to read every placard. I could stay in their for hours. Also one of my favorites is a Boeing 80A-1 from the 1920s!

I went there during Sea Fair and it was really cool. You can get to see historical jets and they always have a temporary exhibit that's cool to see.

Quite simply a fantastic museum for anyone with an interest in flight, engineering and history. Superb restored exhibits from the earliest history of flight. The blackbird in the main interior hall is extremely impressive, as is the open covered hanger Concorde, a 747, a Dreamliner and one of the early Air Force One's to name but a few that you... More
