    i'm headed there tomorrow but i don't remember if they have a no weapons sign or or no guns policy. i'll be armed one way or the other, but if it's going to mess up the visit for my girlfriend, i don't want to get kicked out. i'll just CC if that's the case. anyone done it?

    The 3 times I have been there have been on a school field trip so I was not able to carry at all. I do not recall seeing any signs restricting firearms.

    The only time I went there (once) I CCd. You could be the test case. As far as I know there is no law against it, but when you go, keep your eyes peeled for a no firearms sign. You could also call in advance and ask them what their policy is.

    Generally when I go to museums I CC, just to help keep the peace and not have any confrontations.

    In my previous job I was contacted by their head of security in regards to the products my company sold. I visited with him and at the end of our business conversation, we started talking about where we grew up. He wasn't from Seattle area, but from Montana. This was all around the time that I was introduced to opencarry.org (2+ yrs ago), so I asked him if he knew that WA was an open carry state. He not only told me he was aware of WA open carry, as well as Montana, but he said he wouldn't have a problem with it at the museum. While they didn't have a specific policy, as long as it did not present a problem, he would instruct his security people to be respectful of those who were carrying, and to just observe. No surprise to any of us, very few OC'ers have ever presented a problem while out in public. Their head of security understands that an armed society is a polite society.

    I would give the Museum of Flight a thumbs up for OC.

    Lots of school groups visit there. Rest assured that one of the addle-brained teachers or parents will complain to the staff if they see a gun ,which will no doubt cause Security to be called.

    That's when the fun will begin, regardless of signs.
