The treasures of the Flying Heritage Collection are presented within the social, political, technological and economic context of their time, from an international perspective.

For each nation involved in world conflicts, designing and delivering a mighty air fleet wasn't all that was needed to fight the enemy. Sacrifices were also made by the general citizens, who had to ration or forego domestic goods – metal, cloth, gasoline, food – to equip their armies.

While the Flying Heritage Collection showcases the spectacular warbirds and technologies of 1935-45, its exhibits also shine a light on the humanity at the homefronts.

Why War: The Causes of Conflict
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Why War: The Causes of Conflict is the newest exhibition at Paul G. Allen’s Flying Heritage Collection on Paine Field in Everett, Washington. Why War is a highly interactive media rich exhibit that explores the roots of military confrontations throughout our nation’s history. Dynamic large-scale touchscreens, engaging infographics, and rare historical artifacts examine conflict through the lenses of inciting factors, key figures, technology, and pop culture to demonstrate the common causes of war. Why War’s engaging interactives let families, community groups, and school classes choose how they want to explore this complex topic.

Wars are not random events; recurring risk factors combine to spark conflict. By... exploring the nature of war and the introduction of nuclear weaponry, we ask the question - are we safer now than ever before? These and many other complex questions are answered inside of this informative exhibit. Some of the incredible experiences waiting for you within the exhibit include the a massive interactive wall with in-depth information on every American conflict, replicas of two atomic bombs, a war room, and much more.
