The Museum Of Flight, Seattle Reviews - Write a Review
Visited this museum while on my first trip to Seattle this past week. I am so glad I did as it was honestly the best museum I have ever been to anywhere in the world! I spent about 3 hours walking around, learning, exploring, and climbing aboard my most favorite aircraft of the past, and present! The best part was, the museum focuses on not only commercial aviation, but also space exploration and I was able to gain insight into so much just by having gone!! This is such a wonderful, and family friendly, cost efficient visit, that I would encourage anyone and everyone to visit while visiting the Seattle area! You will not regret it!
Fantastic to have a function there! We invited nearly 40 people for a celebration and I have to say, they accommodated us perfectly. They have all sizes of rooms to fit your needs. And the food we had through McCormick and Schmucks (on site catering) was far better than I expected. I would hold another event there in a heartbeat. Judy P
This museum is fantastic. Great for families and kids. It's interactive so lots to touch, except the artifacts themselves of course! So many one of a kind planes and historical items. Plan on a couple of hours, so much to see. Plus a cafe for when you get hungry. And a neat gift shop.
Great experience! You get to see a lot of the history of aviation and space missions. In the outside hangar you can enter and see inside all the planes, including the Concorde, the Air Force One, a new 787 and an old 747. Good for kids also, with a play area simulating an airport. Recommended!
Top notch museum caters to folks of all ages and approaches the subject from many different angles. Little kids get hands on time working the controls of real planes in the play area. The exhibits display a world class collection of aircraft, spacecraft, and artifacts and present them with historical context. I particularly like the “Personal Courage” wing which tells the stories of WWI and WWII aviation in an immersive setting with some amazing planes. They even touch on the horror of trench warfare in an impactful way. This part may be too intense for some youngsters. Hands down my favorite museum in the area.
