A Visit to the Museum of Flight

 My family and I recently visited the Museum of Flight in Seattle. I'd visited a few times before, but it was at night, during the first Thursdays of the month when the museum is free. After our most recent visit, I'd have to say I prefer visiting in the daytime. 

We ate lunch at the Wings Cafe. They have sandwiches, salads, and a kids' menu. I had a fresh and yummy Turkey Arugula Sandwich on Focaccia Bread. My husband had a sandwich with Roasted Beef on Focaccia, along with a Johnny Utah Pale Ale. It was a hoppy beer that reminded me of grapefruit! Our sons had a Peanut Butter and Jelly and a Hot Ham and Cheese. Both items come with chips and a drink. 

After eating lunch, we checked out the museum. The museum is big and takes at least two hours to walk through. For the first time at the Museum of Flight we were able to go across the street to the other part of the museum and check out the airplane hangar with the biggest planes in the world. The Concorde, Air Force One, Boeing 747, Boeing 777, and the Dream Liner were some of the planes we could actually go inside. My sons absolutely loved this part. Most kids would have a blast here! 

There's a lot of fun interactive stuff for kiddos. There's even a play area so kids can run around and also pose inside of helicopters and planes. I've always liked the Space exhibit, where you can see NASA stuff and learn more about the Moon Landing. 

On this visit, we were able to check out the Walt Disney Studios and World War 11 exhibit. No photography was aloud in the exhibit because of copyright. We weren't wowed by the exhibit. You can see it until Feb. 5th. 

We enjoyed out time at the museum! Our feet were tired by the time we left. There's a lot of walking involved, if you want to see everything. They have a really nice gift shop. It's really big and there's something for everyone. We bought a tasty malt chocolate bar with a cute plane logo. 

Definitely check out the Museum of Flight if you've never been! Go to their website for more info.
