Museum of Flight Aviation Pavilion

For the first time, the Museum of Flight's collection of large commercial aircraft from the 1930s to the present can be displayed in one place.

The Aviation Pavilion covers a space larger than two football fields, and includes retail, presentation kiosks and volunteer booths along with the massive aircraft artifacts.

The KidPort is an airport-themed play area where children can try their hand at being air travelers or airport employees.

Devlivery company FedEx worked with the museum to create an exhibit about the business of air freight, with an interactive, behind-the-scenes experience created from the fuselage of a former FedEx Boeing 727 freighter.
