50-Plus Years of Aviation Innovation
The Museum of Flight began in 1966 to preserve the history of aviation and its most impressive artifacts. Now, more than 50 years later, it is one of Seattle’s most popular attractions. The museum has grown extensively since it first opened at the Seattle Center, and Sellen is proud to have been part of that growth.
Sellen’s relationship with the Museum of Flight began nearly 15 years ago in 2001 with the construction of the Personal Courage Wing. Since completing the project, the Museum of Flight and Sellen have enjoyed a long-term partnership that has included many unique projects. And the museum is already looking ahead to the next 50 years.
“We are taking bold steps forward to preserve our collections and exhibits, enhance our visitor experience and provide a deeper and more lasting educational impact on the community,” said Doug King, president and CEO of the museum. “We are proud to be working with our tremendous community partners —including Sellen — as we look to the next 50 years.”
