The Museum of History & Industry (MOHAI) is a history museum in the South Lake Union neighborhood of Seattle. MOHAI is the largest private heritage organization in the State of Washington, maintaining a collection of nearly 4 million artifacts, photographs, and archival materials that primarily focus on Seattle and the greater Puget Sound region. A portion of this collection (roughly 2 percent at any given time) is on display in the museum's galleries at the historic Naval Reserve Armory. Highlights include Boeing's first commercial plane, the 1919 Boeing B-1; the Petticoat Flag, an 1856 American Flag sewn by women during the Battle of Seattle; and the Rainier Brewing Company's 12-foot tall neon "R" sign.
