What to Do
The Museum of Flight is far more than a collection of old aircraft...
The William A. Helsell Education Department at The Museum of Flight exists to provide a foundation for scholarly research and lifelong learning programs inspiring an interest in and understanding of science, technology and the humanities. The Museum is dedicated to serving learners of all ages and we have programs that meet the needs of all audiences.
Research & Restoration
The Museum of Flight’s fundamental goals are: to acquire and preserve a wide array of materials and artifacts relating to aviation and space history and to provide a center for the scholarly research of these materials and artifacts. The Museum holds one of the largest and most comprehensive air and space collections in the United States, containing millions of rare photographs and negatives, a world-class library, tens of thousands of artifacts, and over 150 rare aircraft and space vehicles.
