An entire day, or at least most of the day needs to be reserved for a visit to Seattle’s Museum of Flight. Do not underestimate the amount of time needed here! This is a huge museum that spans several buildings and when you are displaying large aircraft invariably you have to spill the exhibits outdoors. The museum is located at 9404 E. Marginal Way South, right next to the King County International Airport about 8 miles south of Seattle.
The museum is separated into exhibits. One of the real highlights is the spacecraft exhibition – moon rocks, tons of photos, interactive displays, a huge video screen showing the space station, and an actual replica of one of the rooms in the Space Station. We ended up spending about 2.5 hours just in this one exhibit! Docents are on hand to help answer any of your flight and space related questions. Real historical space craft are also on display and the collection keeps growing. A Concorde, an Air Force One and several other unique planes are located outside. Visit: www.museumofflight.org
