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. To take advantage of discounts offered to returning visitors, consider purchasing a "return trip" ticket, valid for up to seven days.

The Museum of Flight reviews
The Museum of Flight is very cool. They have so many planes to look at, both inside and out. Also really enjoyed the special exhibit on Disney and World War II.

The Museum of Flight is an excellent way to spend your day. Whether you are an aviation enthusiast or just want something to do for a day, this is an excellent way to spend several hours. They amazing displays of aircraft and Boeing history, as well as aircraft from all eras to include the early 1900s to modern aircraft. There are many exhibits you can walk through and explore, this museum is especially informative for young adults and children. The staff was a very friendly and the facilities are immaculate. The Museum of Flight is a must-see.
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
