Located approximately 25 miles north of Seattle, the Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Tour is the only public tour of a commercial jet assembly plant in North America. Explore the interactive exhibits and displays in the 28,000-square-foot Aviation Center Gallery; then take a 90-minute tour of the Boeing plant where you can watch 747s, 777s, or 787 Dreamliners being assembled on the Everett production line right before your eyes.

Are you an aviation nut or maybe you’d like to know more about those big planes they build here? Well, this place was made for you. See the future of powered, winged flight. Digitally design and test your own jet. Ride the XJ5 Flight Simulator and "fly" at supersonic speeds. Woo-hoo!

Please note:
There is a minimum height requirement of 4 feet (122 cm) to take the tour. This restriction is strictly enforced. All tours are conducted in English. Cameras and electronic devices, including cell phones, are allowed only in the Future of Flight Aviation Center and may not be taken to the factory. Lockers are available at the Future of Flight.  

The Boeing Tour involves walking down and up two steep flights of stairs at each end of the factory, walking through two large tunnels, the first .3 miles (.5 km) round trip, the second shorter, and riding two freight elevators to balconies overlooking the Boeing factory floor. With advance notice, special accommodations can be made for wheelchairs or physically challenged guests.
