  • My 2nd time coming here. The exhibits are great but this time was quite disappointing. The horror exhibit was completed closed and there was no advertising for this. It was one of the main things we wanted to see. The David Bowie exhibit it sad as it is just pictures. No props like the Nirvana exhibit. All the Hendrix gear was gone too. I love this place...but I hope they step up their game or discount the price when while exhibits are gone.

  • Fun for the entire family. We were there for 6 hours exploring. The Jim Henson exhibit was awesome and worth the extra $. The ticket is a sticker you wear and gives you access to the museum for the entire day. We walked across the street and had a sandwich at the McDonald's about half way through our day (great way to save a little money). Great photo opportunities throughout the museum.

  • If you're looking for hours of fun and learning then you'll find it here at the Museum of Pop Culture. When I visited I saw the Star Trek exhibit and it was totally worth the ticket price. I was very impressed with the history collected and effort put into presenting all the wardrobes. The transporter room was also really cool to do. Beyond the special exhibits you'll find Rock concerts, music videos, and of course food. This place is hot, so bring a light jacket and bottle water.

  • Amazing building and venue. It basically consist of two parts: (1) Pop music and (2) SCI-FI and Fantasy. Especially the pop-part we very much enjoyed! The location is very easy to get to. We recommend the City-pass that also includes the Needle.

  • Impressive entrance with the big screen. Admission is $30. Gift shop has a lot of cool things you can buy and the restaurant inside is really good. Worth checking out if you're in the area.
