Boeing Future of Flight, Washington, United States
4.5 (6.241 reviews) Tuesday: Spent Ranking #1 in Mukilteo Factory Tours
If you are interested in planes, this is for you!
three adults and one child (age 8) enjoyed this tour. We went on a weekday and the factory floor was in full swing. I loved being able to see the different planes being put together. What an engineering feat! The tour is really informative and kept my son engaged the whole time. It is a 90 minute tour and includes a little walking and various displays. The highlight for sure, was just being able to see the planes and plane parts in various stages. It is north of seattle, so you will want to plan for a half day excursion if you are coming from seattle (don't forget about traffice). Also after the tour, there is a nice musuem display that we spent about 45 minutes exploring before our growling tummies said it was time to eat.

This museum and Museum of Flight in south of Seattle near Seattle - Tacoma International Airport compliments each other well. This one focus on future with more interactive "game like" exhibits where as Museum of Flights focus on the past and present with traditional "read the displays" museum experience. If you have time, highly recommend to visit both. Museum of Flight is larger and bigger with multiple themes. Even though Boeing's Future of Flight is smaller in museum size, what makes this museum so special and unique are: 1. Where the Boeing Facility tour begins - currently being suspended due to COVID. 2. The Sky Deck gets a great spectacular panoramic view of mountains surrounding the Seattle area, and the world's largest building from distance. If you are lucky, you may also see planes taking off and landing. 3. The interactive exhibits are fun to try. 4. The largest Boeing Store (gift shop) 5. Downtown/City of Everett is 10 minutes away and worth visiting with a nice downtown and seaport There are lockers and a cafe on the first floor. Good for all ages to spend half to a day there. If you plan to go through everything thoroughly without rushing, budget at least 5 hours. Visiting this Boeing museum and Museum of Flight is one of primary reasons for my Seattle trip. Both museum amazed me in their own unique ways - a wonderful aviation feast!

Its important to know that when visiting the Future of Flight, all you're really doing is walking into a couple of huge hangers. Unlike say the Ford F150 assembly line in Dearborne, you wont see much action here. But the size of the place is something to behold and just seeing 747's and 787's in various states of build, is amazing. Our Tour Guide was very informative and the 90 minutes went very fast. Note you cant take photos inside, so no happy snaps of a great experience I'm afraid.
