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. The cafe has delicious snacks and the shop has books about aviation and can be wonderful gifts. If you have more time in your agenda, you could even participate in the weekend camps that they organize that include staying at the museum over night to learn more about aviation technology.
This is a museum you should not miss as it will literally make you feel like you have wings!

Worth a visit no matter what your age. Great for kids interested in flying and space but fantastic for adults to take a deep dive on every aspect of flying. Their outdoor section that allows visitors to enter the cabin of many planes including the Concorde, Air Force one, 747, 786, and a bunch of others as well. Lots of detail and information located alongside all the displays. Easily takes 2+ hours to just quickly walk through all the exhibits. If you want to really explore every part of the museum, plan to spend an entire day.
My boyfriend brought me here for the 3 day weekend. I never been to a museum I know such an amateur so he brought me to a fun Disney one since we are going to Disneyland soon! Super cute museum, I never knew the Disney museum was located here. There are different rooms inside like a timeline of how Disney started. It pretty interesting to see the history of how everything was created and some interesting history also! Definitely worth a trip, its a good 2-3 hours of discovery there. They have this whole 3-D module of Disneyland, it was super cool and the Oscars were cool to see up close!The location of this museum is beautiful, up at presidia and you can see the gold gate bridge and bay!
This is a pretty large and nicely presented collection of aircraft and other materials. Interesting displays include many vintage aircraft, a Concorde, a 787, etc. I would say the one part that is currently fairly thin are displays of spacecraft (there was one recent Soyuz TMA capsule, and not a lot else). I did catch a glimpse of the Lunar Module and F1 engine that are going to be part of a new display though, those should add some interest! There are quite a few extra cost show/program/exhibit items, like flight simulators and whatnot that you may find interesting, but I haven't checked those out.
What a interesting place to get to know the history of aviation. This museum gives you the chance to know how it all started. It covers several historical aspects such as the technical evolution, its contribution the world wars, and the seamless transition from US air mail role to more of a passenger transportation system. The volunteers at this museum are really passionate and enthusiastic when talking about the aviation which makes this a even more interesting experience. This is a place that works well for aviation enthusiasts as well as family and kids. Please come with plenty of time because this is a place to see with no rush.
I wish I could give this place 6 stars. Absolutely a MUST for airplane fans! Not only do they have awesome exhibits of planes of all eras inside, but you can go inside the first 747, a 727, the old Air Force One, the 3rd prototype of the 787, and of course the Concorde! One of the best (if not THE) best plane museum anywhere. Oh, it's also right next to Boeing Field so you can also watch newly-built planes take off and land. Awesome experience!
