Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Factory Tours

1,364 Reviews
Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Factory
At the Future of Flight Aviation Center, visitors can learn about the history and the future of aviation design. The Boeing factory tour is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to witness jet assembly, view 747, 767, 777, and 787 Dreamliner planes as they’re being built, learn about the history of Boeing’s planes, and test your own aircraft designs at the educational Future of Flight Aviation Center museum. The Boeing tour is the only public tour of a commercial jet assembly plant in North America, and even better, Boeing is the largest aerospace company in the world.

The Basics
The Boeing factory is a popular attraction for visitors to Seattle, offering a behind-the-scenes look at airplane manufacturing. Check out the interactive exhibits in the Airplane Design Zone, get a virtual tour of a 787 flight deck, peek inside a jet engine, and visit the Aviation Center Gallery, where you can modify, test, and finalize your own aircraft design at touchscreen computers before printing off the final schematic to take home as a souvenir. At the factory, you can walk above the work floor with a Boeing representative who offers insight into the inner workings of large-scale jet assembly. Travelers to Seattle can head to the Everett-area facility on a half-day tour that includes a tour guide and roundtrip transportation from Seattle hotels.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Wear comfortable shoes—the Boeing factory tour involves walking about 1/3 mile through a tunnel and climbing two steep flights of stairs.
  • Individuals must be at least 4 feet tall (122 cm) to take the tour, and children younger than 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • All tours are given in English.
  • With advance notice, special accommodations are available for wheelchair users.
  • Restrooms are not available during the factory tour.
  • Travelers can upgrade to a tour that includes a visit to the Museum of Flight Restoration Center & Reserve Collection at nearby Paine Field (Snohomish County Airport). You’ll see aviation artifacts and dozens of aircraft in various states of restoration for display.
