This was the largest aviation museum I've visited. It has a little bit of everything for an aviation history enthusiast. The museum is easy to find for those not familiar with the area.

This is a terrific museum with a very comprehensive display of aircraft and aircraft history. There are numerous hands on activities for children. Right now, part of the outside display is closed due to construction of a new building. It is scheduled to be open June 2016. The museum has done an amazing job of restoration and display of aeronautical... More

Parking was free and next to the door. It was a very full day of looking at aircrafts. The signs about each exhibit are a little wordy, with little one that want to got to the next thing to see or do. The small Playland was a hit with my kids. Outside area was under construction. Space shuttle area across... More

This is a great museum to visit and see mainly old planes. It is in a remote industrial setting near the Boeing Airport about 6 miles south of Seattle. It costs about $30 for a txt from Seattle. Remember to take the Taxi details to call for a ride back to Seattle as not many taxis pass by.

This place was huge so there was a lot of ground to cover. Got to see the assembly process for 747, 737, and 787 planes being put together.

This is the place to see the evolution in aircraft. Must see, includes the first 747 and one of the 707's that acted as AIR FORCE ONE. Till you stand in the 707 as laid out for the transportation of the President you wont appreciate that a sister aircraft transported JFK for Dallas. Good value.

If your here with a plain fanatic they will enjoy it. For me it was something to do and I did learn a few things. There are a lot of plains you can go visit and actually sit in which is a bonus. Kids will definitely enjoy this attraction.

This place is massive. It is very educational with just enough hands on fun stuff. They have tour guides that walk around and chat with you about the different exhibits. I like being able to go into some of the planes. We were here 2 years ago and we were able to go inside the planes that were parked outside... More

We actually attended a private event at the museum, but we were super impressed with it even though there were only a couple wings open to us. There's great informational signage everywhere, and I recommend it for all kinds of visitors.
