Museum Of History And Industry, Seattle Reviews - Write a Review

  • It was like reading a story so down-to-earth and so beautifully illustrated. A visionary and practical city. There is this spirit of problem solving for better inhabitancy rooted in the core, as well as a vividness and native human emotion freely expressed. Can't wait to check out Alki Point post visit!

  • A fantastic, well organized, perfect example of a museum. Visited before moving here and will still continue to frequent its exhibits. The whole place is an interactive and informative experience. Would 1,000% recommend for families and children 10+ Learned a lot about Seattle's history and you can't beat the views on the dock! Love!

  • Such a wonderful museum. Love learning about Seattle's history of boom, bust, and continuous innovation. Great for visiting friends and families that like museums and don't necessarily enjoy the crowds. Plus it's in Lake Union Park so there's a lot of really scenic views, outdoor spaces; and you can even watch seaplanes take off and land on the water.

  • Tons of history with really detailed exhibits. If you like to stop and read everything you could easily spend 3-4 hours here. Make sure to check out the 4th floor, maritime museum, and take a look through the periscope for a 360° view of Seattle.

  • Best history museum I have ever been to. The exhibits are fun and hold your attentions--including a mini musical about the great Seattle fire. Rotating exhibits are well done also. I went to the edible Seattle exhibit about food around the northwest area. Only complaint is that the museum is freezing so bring a sweater.
