Imagine Children's Museum

Reviewed By pohyb - vancouver BC

An awesome place to visit for children and parents. We had a blast, visiting from Vancouver BC,we always drove by, finally stopped and stayed,and will do it again. Great place especially for younger kids, but our 8 and 11 year old, had so much fun,(parents as well) especially in the restaurant. Staff inside was awesome however the entry was quite interesting. Make the long story short, arriving at 11:30 am (place opens at 10 am)on Thursday paying and at the cashier for two adults and two kids, bill is $42.80. I hand over a 100 dollar bill and the person casually informs me that she doesn't have change for 100 dollar bill. So I say ok, well since you don't have change maybe I can leave my ID and come back later to settle the bill?? She says ok , ya you can come back later. So I pull out my ID and say OK we go inside and I will come in couple hours to pay for the admission. She says, OH you cannot go inside without paying!!! I say I am trying to pay and I have money but you say you have no change. I asked to speak to a manager. She goes and talks to a manager, who did not even have a face to come out of her little office, but sent a message that here is no money downstairs and also I was told that they start their float with $20 in the till. Yes people appearantly place this big starts with 20 dollar float.!!! Anyways, we collected some small bills and change and charged the rest to a credit card, which was exactly what I did not want to do because of the exchange, but anyways, no help from the front desk, or management. Very poor, in normal situation I would just turn and walk away, but since you have kids and that is what you came here for I could not. And they obviously know that!!! So make sure even you come with money have small bills!!! Have fun, the place is awesome, kids love the music show in log cabin!!!!

Right on the Mukilteo Speedway at Paine Field is HFF. Experience these beautifully displayed and fully restored aircraft. All the planes (13) are airworthy and fly on a regular basis. Take a tour with one of the informative docents and experience these rare birds up close and personal, including getting on board the DC-3 and B-25. This pristine collection features rare planes designed and/or built between 1927 and 1957, a historical sweet spot in the history of aviation development and innovation. The extremely rare P-51B Mustang flew three missions during D-Day and has seven confirmed kills from WWII. A great family outing if you have kids that get wide-eyed whenever they see a plane fly over. This collection is not to be missed!

De-Vine Wines

Reviewed By Imhotep2 - Seattle, Washington

Nice to see a wine shop/wine bar on the main drag in town center. Adds a little tranquil sophistication? Not sure there are enough that appreciates this place amongst the demographic....

Nice selection of wines by the glass.
Food offerings mainly as accompaniments to the wines. The usual (not in a bad way) baked brie, cheese plates etc.

When I feel like shopping for that vintage piece for my home, this is close and lovely.
Many shops to explore through out Snohomish's historic district down town. Shop till you drop, then stop at the Cabbage Patch restaurant for some lunch. O
They have wonderful lunches and soups.

The aircraft, vehicles and artifacts in the Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum are rare treasures of military technology — a testament to the era’s engineering skill and humanity’s spirit during the world conflicts of the 20th century. On rotation in our working hangar are military artifacts from the United States, Britain, Germany, Soviet Union and Japan, acquired by Paul G. Allen and restored with unparalleled authenticity to share with the public. FHCAM is operated by Friends of Flying Heritage, a 501(c)(3) organization committed to educating people about these rare historic aircraft and artifacts. The museum is currently experiencing rapid growth, bringing in exciting new wonders like the Republic F-105 Thunderchief, de Havilland Mosquito and dozens of new artifacts in 2017.

World Class collection of WW2 aircraft. Most are maintained for flight and are flown by museum personnel. Museum docents/guides in many cases have flown the aircraft they are describing. Some of the aircraft are the only examples in the world still flying. The FW 190 with the original BMW engine is an example. Their collection of combat vehicles is no less interesting often including specific vehicle history.
