We visited Seattle this month for a week. This place was not initially on our itinerary. However, a day trip tour guide sold us on visiting. We weren't disappointed. This museum is every bit as nice as the Smithsonian Air & Space museum! Highly recommend especially if you are a WWI or WWII history buff.

Our son gave us membership of this museum as a gift and we are so grateful for his thoughtfulness. The exhibits are excellent, and meet the interests of a wide range of visitors. Our toddler grandson loved the children’s exhibit, as well as those designed for adults. I saw teenagers and adults alike enjoying the simulators, and for history buffs, there is much to admire. The history of space explorations is worth seeing, and apart from a little disappointing cafe, this is an excellent day out. Take a picnic and enjoy watching the planes take off and land on Boeing Field.

A varied collection of some unique Aircraft designed and operated through the last 100 years. Take your time to visit all areas including walking through some of the larger Aircraft over the road.

Ye. This is the most outstanding museum of this kind I've ever been. Complete history behind of some iconic airplanes since beginning of aviation history. I highly recommend to spend at least 3h to cover the complete museum.

Great collection of airplanes with lots of information about different wars, which is not exactly my cup of tea, but I enjoyed it. I especially liked the section about women in aviation and being able to go inside Air Force One. Great place to visit for families.
