Seattle architect Ibsen Nelsen (1919-2001) collaborated with the structural engineer Jack Christiansen (b. 1927) on the design of the Museum of Flight. The Gilbert H. Moen Company of Yakima, WA, served as the general building contractor.

Located at Boeing Field, south of Seattle, WA; the Museum consists of the original "Red Barn" wing of the museum, opened in 1983; a 'Great Gallery,' a 3 million-cubic-foot, six-story exhibit hall that housed 39 aircraft including a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, and an outdoor 'Airpark,' where one of the Concorde SST aircraft was housed; only twenty Concordes were built, this being the only one on the U.S. West Coast;

A three-story, 88,000-square-foot addition called the 'Personal Courage Wing,' opened 06/06/2004; in 2007, the Museum of Flight bought 6.5 more acres of land located across East Marginal Way from the existing museum. This land would eventually be used for the Aviation High School, a Space Gallery, and a storage hanger for existing planes.
