Boasting a collection of 150 space vehicles and aircraft from throughout history, Seattle's Flight Museum is loads of fun for the whole family.

Why kind of exhibits are at the Museum? 

There are lots of awesome permanent exhibits to see. Climb into the cockpits of a variety of aircraft, including a SR-71A Blackbird reconnaissance plane and an F/A Hornet fighter jet. You'll get to manipulate the instrument panels and hear real engine sounds. See Air Force One, the U.S. president's personal jet plane call sign - a floating Oval Office. Get an idea of what space flight would be like with models of the Apollo 17 mission and in the Space Flight Academy exhibit. 


Are there any special exhibits for children? 

Yes. The Kids' Flight Zone seamlessly combines education with fun. Children from as young as preschool up through middle school age experience all kinds of different ways to fly. They can climb into the basket of a hot air balloon, and strap on the harnesses of hang gliders. How about sitting in the cockpit of a Rotorway Scorpion helicopter? Engine models show how planes stay aloft, and a wind machine illustrates aerodynamics.
