Museum Of History And Industry, Seattle Reviews
One of the best curated museums I've ever been in. Beautiful venue on Lake Union. Lots and lots to see and linger over. Many interactive exhibits. Wonderful videos. The history of Seattle, it's indigenous people, it's talented and industrious past are covered in depth.... Right up to all the innovation and tech savvie industry today.
An amazing museum! I spent a solid 3 hours there and barely made a dent in the exhibits. Extremely well crafted exhibits, well researched and on target to the Seattle area. Extremely interesting displays and often highly interactive. I would've given it 5 full stars but the admission process of $20 a person is a tad bit exorbitant. Definitely will be back... Maybe I can find a Groupon or other deal?
Simply WONDERFUL!!! Didn't think I would spend hours there when I discovered it by accident walking along the lake. We regret leaving that place and will revisit again and again. The staffs and volunteers were extremely friendly and helpful! I would recommend a visit there to anyone!
We especially liked the World War 1 display and gaining a new understanding of events that were happening in the world at that time. They have so many fun interactive displays and videos as well as photographs and information to read about the people and events that were important to the time. Enjoyed being down by the water and just having time to take in the displays on everything from the Seattle Fire to Old growth forests and history of the world.
We went for the It's Raining Cats and Dogs exhibit which was smaller than I expected, but we were pleased to explore the rest of the museum. There is a lot to see and do. Some of the exhibits have interactive features - like helping to build the railroad by pounding spikes with a mallet. Fun and educational!
