PHOTOS: Museum of Flight soars with epic, historic aircraft


Tukwila is lucky to have the Museum of Flight, a first-class air museum located at 9404 E. Marginal Way South, near Boeing Field.

Admission is $20 for an adult with senior and AAA discounts – but here’s the cool thing – it’s FREE from 5 to 9 p.m. the first Thursday of every month, including parking!

The museum collection is amazing. Just a few of the airplanes shown below – which you can walk through – are the first jet powered Air Force One (flown by Eisenhower, Nixon, Khrushchev, Kennedy and Johnson), a British Airways Concorde, a Boeing 787, the Full Fuselage Trainer shuttle mockup that was used to train all Space Shuttle astronauts, a TWA – DC-2 (Predecessor of DC-3), and a World War II B-17.
