The Museum of Flight is one of Seattle's most beloved attractions. It's the largest independent, non-profit air and space museum in the world. It holds over 175 aircraft and spacecraft, thousands of artifacts, millions of photographs, and tons of exciting exhibits.
The origins of the museum date back to 1964 when a group of aviation enthusiasts realized that important aviation artifacts were being lost, and the Pacific Northwest Aviation Historical Foundation was established shortly after. In 1965, the first official Museum of Flights were put on display. Today the museum has dozens of exhibits and continues to expand its collections. It is a world of wonder for all aviation lovers.
