Best attraction in Seattle
Walk the aisle of JFK's Air Force One and climb aboard the Concorde at Seattle’s Museum of Flight. Built around Boeing’s original factory, it is the world’s largest air and space museum. Here, you can learn everything about the history of aviation, from the Wright Brothers and the exploration of Mars, to revolutionary aircrafts and spy planes. You’ll get to barrel-roll a Mustang, land on the moon, soar over Puget Sound in a simulator, and even sit at the controls of the fastest jet on Earth. Certain days of the month have free entry, so check before you go. – Tripadvisor

If you like airplanes, you'll enjoy this museum. This museum is comparable to the National Air & Space museum in the National Mall in D.C. but this one charges for admission. It's worthy of a visit. The museum has a cafe for lunch. Recharge with drinks, sandwiches, and a cookie then set out for the 2nd half of the museum.

Listed as one of top 20 air museums in the world by CNN, this museum is an sbsolute must seefor anyone with (or even those without) an interest in aviation and machines designed to leave terra firma. It's large enough so that visitors need at least half a day to see most of the exhibits but for true geeks, only an entire day would do the place justice. Most visitors, including myself, started at the main east galleries where planes from most of the 20th century as well as the Apollo space program were represented, along with a separate gallery of World War 1 and 2 exhibits. A big thrill for me was seeing the iconic SR-71 Blackbird spy plane. But bigger thrills awaited at the west galleries where visitors could see a 707 version of Air Forece One and walk through an actual Concorde jet. I also booked a separate tour that gave me access to a Space Shuttle fuselage trainer which turned out to be well worth it. The Museum is located to the south of Seattle but using the city's reliable public transport system, I was able to get to and from downtown on the #124 bus in about half an hour. The bus stops were located on the main road just outside the museum, but it might be prudent to check out the bus timings in advance.
