Future of Flight & Boeing Tour Near Seattle

FAQs

Everything You Need to Know

Can I purchase tickets the day of the tour?
Tours sell out early and often. To guarantee your seats, it’s best to purchase tickets in advance. You can purchase online or by phone at 800-464-1476 up to one hour before your arrival.

When is the best time to visit? To avoid crowds, visit during off-peak times. Early mornings and late afternoons are generally less crowded. Weekends and the summer months (June-September) are the busiest.


  • The Boeing Factory Tour takes you inside a working assembly plant, which can be noisy and active depending on the day and time. Employees on the Everett site work Monday - Friday, 3 shifts per day. Any employee working Saturday or Sunday would be essential services or overtime, so please be aware that activity in the factory on weekends may be minimal.

Cameras allowed at the Future of Flight and not in the Boeing factory. 
You may take photos inside the Future of Flight facility and from the Observation Deck, but The Boeing Company does not permit still photos or video cameras on the factory tour. For safety reasons, there are no personal items allowed on the tour, including purses, backpacks, waist pouches, binoculars, cell phones, etc. Free lockers are available in the Future of Flight lobby. 



Are there overnight accommodations available nearby? Absolutely! If you want to take full advantage of your trip to the Future of Flight and nearby attractions, consider making a hotel reservation at lodging establishments located in Mukilteo and Everett, WA.

We have someone in our group with special needs. Can they be accommodated?
Tell us in advance if someone with special needs is visiting. With advance notice, we can make arrangements to provide wheelchair assistance. We can also provide an American Sign Language interpreter with two weeks advance notice. The tour does require substantial walking—including through the underground tunnel system of Boeing—so wear comfortable shoes.

Can small children go on the Boeing tour? Children must be at least 4 feet (122 cm) tall to go on the Boeing Tour. You cannot carry babies or small children on the tour and there is no childcare facility at the Future of Flight.

What can my children who are too short for the Boeing Tour do? Families can explore the Aerospace Gallery, purchase a snack in the Paper Plane Café, visit the Boeing Store, or enjoy stunning views from Observation Deck.

Can I fly up and park my aircraft at the Future of Flight? Due to increased security measures, Boeing Future of Flight no longer allows private aircraft parking on the Kilo North Ramp. Please contact Castle & Cooke Aviation Services (Everett, WA KPAE) at 425-355-6600 for private aircraft fly-in parking.
