Seattle Museum of Flight

The Museum of Flight is a large and diverse collection of over 150 aircraft located at Boeing Field, long-time home of the Boeing aerospace company in Seattle, Washington.  It displays an especially comprehensive selection of Boeing aircraft, including rare machines such as a Boeing 100 fighter, a Boeing 40 airliner, and the prototype of the Boeing 747.

The museum expanded in the late 2000s by absorbing the Champlin fighter museum, a collection of World War I and World War II fighter aircraft previously in Arizona.  The new wing built to house these aircraft has earned the scorn of aviation enthusiasts as among the worst air museum display spaces in existence, with crowded exhibits, obstructive displays, dim light, and black-painted walls with no windows.  In contrast, older parts of the museum are open and well-lit.
