At Boeing's 787 Dreamliner Gallery in Everett, Wash., airline customers can explore various interior options for the new aircraft. On the night before the Dreamliner's first flight, we took a look inside.

Here, at the Gallery's entrance, a large-scale model shows the 787's distinctive profile.

The Gallery doesn't offer a full-scale mockup of the cabin, but customers can view a small section with a few rows of seats. A wide array of cabin lighting choices are available. The bright interior shown here could be used for boarding or a meal service.

A darker setting, like the one shown here, could be used for a night flight. Adjacent to this room is an area where customers can select from hundreds of seat fabrics, carpets, and cabin interior colors.

And, of course, any passenger airliner wouldn't be complete without a lavatory.

The Dreamliner's large windows offer an expansive view of the world outside. Rather than using shades, passengers can electronically dim the windows at the touch of a button.
