The most popular attraction in the Port of Everett is the Future of Flight Aviation Center and Boeing Tour. By interior volume, the Boeing factory is the largest building in the world. Aviation enthusiasts will love the factory tour that begins in the 2.6 thousand square meter Future of Flight Aviation Center gallery and theater. The Center contains hands-on exhibits and stations where visitors can design and test their own jets, ride in the multi-passenger XJ5 Flight Simulator, sample coming in-flight entertainment systems, or touch the new hi-tech "skin" of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Visitors will understand how technology is applied to the science of flight and the role aviation plays in world cultures. Visitors can also watch the world's biggest jets being assembled. No cameras allowed.
At the 10th Street Boat Launch entrance, visitors to the Port of Everett will find the remains of a two-masted 1888 schooner, the Equator, which once carried Robert Louis Stevenson to the Gilbert Islands. Used as a trading vessel for years, the ship was abandoned in the Port of Everett's harbor in 1853.
Also in the Port of Everett district, the Weyerhaeuser Building was designed by Seattle architect Carl Gould and built in 1923. The luxurious office building featured Weyerhaeuser's wood products. The 5.6 thousand square meter Collins Building has stood in the Port of Everett's North Marina for over 75 years. A memento of the city's past as a mill town, the historic post and beam wood frame building is now the temporary home of the marina's maintenance staff.
