Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Factory

8:30am–5:30pm
8415 Paine Field Blvd, Mukilteo, WA, 98275

The Basics

The Boeing factory offers a behind-the-scenes look at airplane manufacturing and most visit as part of a half-day tour that includes round-trip transportation. Check out the interactive exhibits in the Airplane Design Zone; get a virtual tour of a 787 flight deck; and peek inside a jet engine.

Then, visit the Aviation Center Gallery, where you can modify, test, and finalize your own aircraft design before printing off the final schematic as a souvenir, before walking above the work floor with a Boeing representative who offers insight into the inner workings of large-scale jet assembly.

This was a real eye opener to airplane manufacturing. You see a total picture as to the planes design and safety in its building and before it's use.

This is a popular attraction. It is a great example of advanced manufacturing. I do understand the need to keep the tour moving but would like more time to soak it all in.

Boeing Factory and Future of Flight Aviation Center Tour from Seattle
Our driver very knowledgeable on Aviation, facility is huge, tours are great but tour didnt allow much spare time before or after felt rushed, unable to take photos inside tour. Tour was a little expensive given the entry costs, definitely worth a visit if you have your own Transport and time

Boeing Factory and Future of Flight Aviation Center Tour from Seattle
Picked up punctually. Our driver an older gentleman, was full of information about Seattle, as we drove by different areas, parks, buildings, he was informing us of the history, people and stories. The factory was brilliant. Our guide was funny and informative. We saw 3 Dream Lifters, and one get pushed back and take off. Over all a fabulous tour.

Pick up and drop off at hotel was seamless. Driver came in to the hotel to pick us up, looking much the part of an aviator! Enjoyed the tour of the factory and the Aviation Center. This is great for anyone interested in airplanes or space modules. Good value.
