The Museum of Flight is one of the largest air and space museums in the world and it is surely the largest in the West. This wonderful 12-acre museum features more than 85 historic space and aircraft, flight stimulators, educational activities and interactive exhibits, which will be interesting for each visitor. It should be said that the museum is located only in ten minutes from downtown Seattle on Boeing Field.

This museum is a great way to explore the wonders of flight from the primitive glider of the Write brothers to the newest Blackbird spy plane.

When you enter the Museum of Flight, most probably, you will be drawn to the Great Gallery. There you will find almost 40 aircraft, which are exhibited inside the three million cubic-foot gallery. It is really GREAT. This gallery gives the opportunity to enjoy one of the flight stimulators or to sit in the cockpit of a Blackbird plane.

It is also important to explore the Red Barn, the workshop, where the first airplane was built by William E. Boeing. 

Not far from the Red Barn, you will find the Personal Courage Wing exhibit, which is dedicated to the planes of World War One and Two. Here you will learn not only about the history of the plane, but also about people who built and flew them.

Take a tour around a real Boeing 737 and learn more about aviation. Kids will surely enjoy the Kid’s Flight Zone and a real flight tower, where they can learn more about the process of controlling air traffic. From the Museums Tower visitors enjoy not only the planes, but also the view of Mt. Rainier.

The Flight Museum also tells a lot about the history of space exploration. Exploring the New Frontier exhibit tells everything from the birth of rocketry to the future of commercial space travelling. Here visitors enjoy a real Apollo space capsule, Moon rocks and other artifacts.

The Museum of Flight offers great opportunities of exploring air and space history. This is the only place where you can find about 150 historical aircraft, artifacts and great educational exhibits.
