All of us have at least once, as a child wanted the ability to fly. With technology and time man has created airplanes and the Museum of Flight is the place where one gets a chance to revel in the fascinating world of these flying machines. They have a prototype Boeing747 and even a spy fighter plane. Along with that they have science and engineering information related to plane building and a number of activities involving these concepts. They have flight simulators to really take your experience off the ground without leaving it. You can plan your own flight and take off too!
On the airfield you can get a chance to sit inside the cockpit of a real aircraft and ensure if it is safe to take off.

Of all the mountains that surround Seattle, Mt Rainier stands the boldest. Appreciate the beauty of Mt Rainier on this full-day tour from Seattle. On clear days, you can see the mountain from downtown, but to grasp its full grandeur and magnificence, you must see it up close!

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!
Connie. What more can I say. Alright, there is more to it than that. The Museum of flight has various buildings with aircraft including aircraft used in WWI, WW2 and space. My personal favorite building is the WWI and WW2 building. In addition to having real aircraft from these events, they also have the most amazing model collection where you can see airplanes you've probably never heard of. Check it out, it's worth it!
We had a great time and spent most of the day here. There are so many great exhibits to explore that it's easy to not see everything. Today was the free admission through the Smithsonian Museum system. Even though there were a lot of people in attendance the Museum of Flight's buildings are large enough to make it seem not too crowded.
Leave an entire day for this place, there is so much to see. I stupidly only allowed a few hours before my flight from SEA and didn’t get to see as much as I wanted. A great collection of aircraft and informative and interactive displays. Staff are incredibly knowledgable and friendly, I would highly recommend this place particularly if you’re interested in aviation. Well worth a visit!
This flight museum is incredible! Great collection of aircraft and space station. I thoroughly enjoyed coming here! The staff and volunteers are very kind and knowledgeable! Reasonably priced and plenty of stuff to do, make sure you have enough time to look at everything, as the place is HUGE! - Definitely worth it!
