Create an itinerary including The Museum of Flight
Walk through the cabins of a British Airways Concorde and the “flying Oval Office” of four presidents at The Museum of Flight, the largest private air and space museum in the world. The museum's world-class collection of nearly 150 aircraft includes a B-17F Flying Fortress bomber, a Lockheed M-21 Blackbird, and a Lockheed model like the one Amelia Earhart piloted when she disappeared over the Pacific. Other highlights include the world's first fighter plane, built in 1914, and one of only two remaining airworthy Douglas DC-2s. Within the museum is the restored “Red Barn,” Boeing’s original manufacturing plant.

  • Seattle being intertwined with Boeing only makes sense for it to have a strong aviation history and this museum is the perfect representation for it. It is very detailed and very well planned out. If you start from one end, you can literally walk through the advancements every step of the way and finally ending up to where aviation is today. Plan to spend 2-3 hours if you want to look at everything properly and read up as well. I had an amazing time here and would highly recommend giving this place a visit if you’re into Aviation even a little
  • I absolutely recommend this place. If you're planning on visiting the museum be ready to spend at least 3 hours but if you can make it a day trip it will be so worth it. The history not only behind the airplanes but also the history and the life story of those who made it happen it's so amazing you can also find a lot of astronomy and space information. Price 4/5 $25 per person. No student discount. Place 5/5 Service 5/5 Time 3 or more hours.
