Where are we going today?

The Flying Heritage Collection is a fun, fascinating and educational way for a family to spend the day immersed in history.

For any child that has dreamed of being a pilot, this is a spectacular place for them to get up close with impressive aircraft that has made its mark in history.

The main focus is on aircraft from WWII, so you will have a first hand look at elements of the very history you will be learning about during your visit. 

Whilst some models have been rebuilt, many are the original deal.  The collection is extensive, with aircraft from Britain, Russia, Germany, Japan, and of course the US, as well as many fascinating and wellpreseved artifacts to learn from. 

The collection also form part of a number of air shows and events throughout the year, so you and go and see them in action!

Your inner pilot will go crazy at everything there is to take in - over 51,000 square feet worth!  

Better make sure you have an early take off!

Teachers corner

The collection is a great idea for field trips. There is so much to learn on the history and times during WWII, as well as aviation history. The best kind of history lesson outside of the classroom. .

I'm Hungry!

Unfortunately no food or drink is permitted within the hangar. .

Any Top Tips?

Best to allow one or two hours to enjoy the full collection and exhibits. .

Need a little extra help?

There are handicap restrooms available, and the museum is fully ADA compliant. A limited number of wheelchairs are available for rental if needed. .

Baby Facilities

There are baby changing tables available in the restrooms. .

Can I get one of those?

There is a gift shop within the museum that offers very pilot friendly gifts for you to take home! Perhaps you might even find something to put in your future cockpit....

    Outstanding displays and great staff. The collection assembled here is superb, and I loved reading the information on the history of the specific aircraft. I'd absolutely go back again.

    I was referred here by a friend, who said that it would "take my breath away" and give me goosebumps. It did!

    The Flying Heritage Collection (FHC) is a relatively small collection of WII planes and artifacts. Tanks, rockets, pistols, AA guns, anti-tank guns and more fill two well designed buildings. The collection itself is stunning - not only because it has a slew of rare WWII planes and vehicles, but also because many of them still run and are flyable! Incredible.

    Parking is ample, the gift shop small and quite, employees incredibly helpful...Read More

    Very Impressive, one of the best air museums I have ever been to. Most of these aircraft have the original engines too, especially the ones that are airworthy. The FW 190 D-13 is my favorite, whether they ever choose to fly it or keep it on display.

    This is a fantastic collection of WW2 war planes, 2 tanks and a flack gun. Talk about the planes that you won't see anywhere else in the world. All of the planes shown are flight worthy, and will be flown this coming spring, the only 2 planes that won't fly are the FW190 Dora 13 and the Japanese Army "Zero" since they are the only planes of its kind in existence... Well worth the $7 for an unforgettable experience

    A little different from most "museums", but clean (You could eat off the floor). the Docents are knowledgable and knowing that every plane on exhibit also flies is impressive. This is a must see for WWII aircraft.

Parking is ample, the gift shop small and quite, employees incredibly helpful and friendly. There is a schedule of flying events, so be sure to look online before you visit. My thanks to all who work and volunteer their time there - and to Paul Allen for gathering and maintaining such an incredible collection of history. If you're a WWII or plane buff, you've got to go to the Flying Heritage Collection!
