It was perfect timing for Sarah and Tre who are visiting from Nashville, Tennessee.

“We came this week hoping it would be open and it worked out for us,” Sarah said.

The museum will operate at 25% capacity and folks should reserve and buy tickets online. Visitors are expected to mask up, practice social distancing, follow the one-way signs and expect to see a whole lot more cleaning.

“We’re really excited at Boeing Future of Flight to reopen to welcome guests back,” said Norm Mah with the museum.

Some of the interactive exhibits are also open. For instance, you can still fly a drone and even use the flight simulator.

“Our guides and content specialists hosting those specific exhibits making sure that as our guests travel through, we’re making sure all those things are being sanitized immediately after use,” Mah explained.

But one thing that isn’t happening - the Boeing Factory Tour which was a bit of a bummer for Sarah and Tre.

“But we understand. We plan to come back here when it does open again,” they said.

Nonetheless, they’re just glad the museum was open at all.

“It opens your mind and you’re able to grow and learn. And it’s awesome to be able to come out and do stuff like that in the real world again,” said Sarah.

Boeing said it is considering a virtual experience for the Boeing Factory Tour. The Museum is open Thursdays through Mondays.
