The Museum of Flight in Seattle begins a phased reopening to the general public on Sept. 5-7 Labor Day Weekend, following two days of Museum Member previews. The Museum will then be open Friday through Monday Sept. 11-14 and Sept. 18-21, and beginning Sept. 24 the days of operation will be five days a week—Thursday through Monday—until further notice. Daily attendance to the 23-acre campus will be held to 25% capacity in accordance with Washington state Phase II COVID-19 guidelines. Tickets must be purchased online, with timed admission entry. The Museum’s new exhibit, Untold Stories-World War II at 75, opens Sept 19 and is free with admission.
All five buildings, including the open-air, 3-acre Aviation Pavilion and the 2-acre outdoor Vietnam Veterans Memorial Park will be available. The Museum has more square footage than any museum of its kind on the West Coast and one of the largest open-air aviation pavilions in the world. Smaller galleries, some airplane cabins and flight simulators will be closed for COVID-19 safety measures until further notice. The Boeing 747 and 787 Dreamliner will be open.
The Museum’s main, eastside entrance, will be the only point of entry. Face coverings will be required for all visitors (age 2 and up), and a brief, contactless health screening will be asked upon entry to the Museum. All purchases onsite will be cashless.
