The Museum Of Flight, Seattle Reviews

  • Most recently I was here for an event so I didn't actually get to check out the museum, except for the event hall we were in. However, I've been before and I do every enjoy it. They have a lot of planes to look at, including my personal favorite the SR-71 Blackbird, and a couple you can sit it. There's even a space section with fairly up-to-date space information and the Space Shuttle training module.

  • It's a must for plane buffs from all over the world. Lots of magnificent aircraft are on display here, both military and civilian. Examples include the mythical SR71 Blackbird as well as NASA planes and the first 747 ever made. They are well maintained and there are also lots of extremely helpful and interesting information available everywhere in the museum. Don't forget that visit to the gift store! All in all, a great day out and why not combine it with a visit to Plaine Field later on.

  • Absolutely fantastic! I took my Mom, a former pilot. She loved it! There's really too much to do and see in one visit. Some of the planes are literally the only ones in existence, lovingly restored. The tour by the docent was fascinating. We had lunch at the cafe, which was much better than one could reasonably expect, considering the volume of patrons. I have been to the Smithsonian aviation museum, and I consider this much better.

  • This place is absolutely a must visit if you're in Seattle. Make sure you dedicate at least a few hours as there is so much to see! I didn't realize how big this place was and went there in the evening, since I had already bought my tickets beforehand I went up to the desk just to confirm. But the gentleman recommended we come back the next day because they were closing in an hour which is not enough time to see everything. They honored the ticket the next day and I was able to e all the places.

  • Impressive variety and huge museum with many planes on display. Cool that you can get in some. Once you think you've been through it all, you get to a new room hanger with more to see. Three stars because some exhibits are quite dated and space shuttle exhibit is not fully open on week days. Price of admission should be discounted if exhibits are not available.
