Seattle's Museum of Flight is reopening next week

Feb 23 2021, 7:16 pm

We’ve got some good news for the air enthusiasts: the Museum of Flight is reopening next week.

A number of restrictions will be in place for safety, including  limiting capacity to 25%, mandatory face coverings for ages 5 and up, and timed ticketing and health screenings upon entry.

“We are very excited to open our doors to the public again—again. We’re cleared for takeoff, glad to fly, and look forward to a wonderful 2021,” said President and CEO Matt Hayes in a press release. “We reinvented the Museum experience for online visitors over the last 10 months, but there’s nothing like being here! New operational guidelines are in place for the safety of visitors and staff, and during the phased attendance reductions the galleries will seem even more spectacular.”

While most exhibits are ready to reopen, the Tower Exhibit, Flight Zone, Great Gallery Cockpits, Concorde and 727 Aircrafts, French Farmhouse (WWI Gallery), Space Shuttle Trainer – Crew Compartment and Rear Theater, Aviation Pavilion Kidport, Pavilion Café, Simulators (i360, 4DX, and Spacequest VR) and the Alaska Airlines Aerospace Education Center will remain closed. 

The Museum of Flight will open to members on February 27 and 28 and to the rest of the public on March 4. It will remain open every Thursday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm until further notice.

Tickets can be purchased online.
