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!

Best to allow one or two hours to enjoy the full collection and exhibits.
Unfortunately no food or drink is permitted within the hangar.
Flying Heritage Collection is located at Paine Field, 3407 109th Street SW, Everett, WA 98204
You will find this at the south end of Paine Field in Everett which can be reached from Airport Rd and 112th St.
There is free parking just outside the hanger, and if you want you could even fly to the museum! There is a designated area of taxiway available.
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.
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...
There are handicap restrooms available, and the museum is fully ADA compliant. A limited number of wheelchairs are available for rental if needed.
