Boeing Factory Tour.

Mon Jul 20, 2015 1:12 am

Was possibly thinking about a trip the Washington state this fall and was hoping for some advice on this time of year and even more making sure there not any closers ant any of the aviation museums.

I assume that you are asking whether the museum is closed in the fall?

If so, no, the factory tour is open year round.

While you're in the area, make sure to check out the other great museums in Seattle. Paul Allen's Flying Hertiage Collection, the Historic Flight Foundation, and the Museum of Flight Restoration Center are all located at Paine Field, just a few miles from the Boeing tour. Personally, I think all three are superior museums to the factory tour and Future of Flight.

Also, the Boeing Field Museum of Flight (at BFI) is a huge museum with an impressive collection of aircraft, located on the opposite side of Seattle.

Oh yes those museums are fantastic, they are a must for any aviation enthusiast.

At BFI, you will see preserved the very first 747 built, an American 727, a British Airways Concorde, as well as an Air Force One 707. Those preserved aircraft are worth to have a look at, especially the 747.

There is also a preserved B-47 in the Museum of Flight displayed outside, as well as an Alaska DC-3 preserved inside.

You will see the "exact house" where the Boeing Company was started back in 1916.

Have a good time, you'll love it.

Thank you the heads up. I just wanted to make sure nothing was closed for maintenance. I know a few years ago they painted the first 747. Just trying to get the most from the trip Seattle is a long ways from New Hampshire.
