The Museum of Flight is an air and space museum was established in 1965 and is one of the largest museums of its type in the world.

The Museum of Flight traces its foundation to 1965 with the recovery and restoration of a 1929 Boeing 80A-1. 

In 1975, the museum acquired the 1909 all-wooden William E. Boeing Red Barn, the original home of the Boeing company, which was relocated to its current location at the southwestern end of Boeing Field. 

Today, the museum’s gallery’s structure is built in a space frame lattice structure that holds more than 20 hanging aircraft, and housing more than 150 aircraft in its collection.

The museum’s education programs grew significantly with the creation of a Challenger Learning Center in 1992. It includes a mockup NASA mission control, and experiments from all areas of space research.
