Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum, Everett

4.8
The aircraft, vehicles and artifacts in the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum (www.FlyingHeritage.com) are rare treasures of military technology — a testament to the era’s engineering skill and humanity’s spirit during the world conflicts of the 20th century. On rotation in our working hangar are military artifacts from the United States, Britain, Germany, Soviet Union and Japan, acquired by Paul G. Allen and restored with unparalleled authenticity to share with the public. The Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum is operated by Friends of Flying Heritage, a 501(c)(3) organization committed to educating people about these rare historic aircraft and artifacts. The museum is currently experiencing rapid growth, bringing in exciting new wonders like the Republic F-105 Thunderchief, de Havilland Mosquito and dozens of new artifacts in 2017.

In 1998, Paul G. Allen began acquiring and preserving these iconic treasures, many of which are the last of their kind. Allen's passion for history, and his awareness of the increasing rarity of original WWII aircraft and vehicles, motivated him to restore these artifacts to the highest standard of authenticity and share them with the public.

  • Very nice selection of military planes, tanks, and armoured vehicles. Majority of the exhibits are WW2 era but there are other war era exhibits as well. The planes and vehicles are in excellent conditioned and many are still operational. The museum is very neat and organized the displays are well marked and very informative. They also have a nice gift shop. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The admission fee is a very good value for the quality of this museum.
  • This museum occupies an old aircraft hanger right next to Paine Field. They host events where they crush cars with tanks and fire off cannons. Even when you're just going to look around this place is amazing! It's also a little somber, to see the history of war lain out in front of you. And a stark reminder that peace is paramount. Nonetheless it's really interesting to see all the fighter jets, tanks, and bombers. Some of which still have dirt on them from their service days. Perhaps my favorite part is the "Why War?" exhibit, where you can see replicas of the very first atom bombs, Little Boy & Fat Man, and the history of war from basically the beginning of time until present. Einstein's letter to Roosevelt about the implication of atomic technology is there. I love the conflict simulator, where you choose a conflict and try to resolve it with as little loss of life and resources as possible. It runs about $22 for adults and $15 for kids, so a bit pricey, but worth it. They have more than adequate free parking most days, but I'm guessing it fills up fast when they host events. We'll definitely be back.
