Museum of Flight

The Museum of Flight in Seattle houses a diverse collection of planes, educational exhibitions, and flight-related historical artefacts. The museum is open from Thursday through Monday, and many visitors spend the whole day there. The museum also offers premium experiences that give visitors access to behind-the-scenes displays in addition to general admission.

The largest aircraft in the collection, including a Concorde, the first jet Air Force One, and military planes like the B-17F Flying Fortress, are displayed in an outdoor gallery. The museum’s interior Great Gallery provides visitors with the pleasure of witnessing several of the planes suspended in mid-flight. The Lear and Space galleries are dedicated to the history and future of space exploration.

The Personal Courage Wing, dedicated to recognising the significant role of aviation throughout World Wars I and II, will appeal to history buffs in particular. 28 rebuilt fighter planes, personal anecdotes from pilots and air support forces, and interactive experiences such as a flight simulator are among the exhibits. The Red Barn artefacts, housed in the barn that originally housed the embryonic Boeing Airplane Company, examine the early days of aviation.

The Boeing tour from Seattle is a handy method to explore the company’s facility for anyone interested in modern aircraft and flying innovation. The tour includes transportation to and from the factory, as well as a 90-minute tour of the assembly plant and its numerous exhibitions.
