Really great spot for both kids and adults. Lots of information presented in ways that are very easy to digest. Lots of little info placards, multimedia formats (videos in mini theaters), touch screen interactions and even a very cool large scale mechanical interaction piece. Highly recommend checking this place out if you want to learn a little bit more about Seattle's history and the progress that has been made to transform this area to the city it is today. It also contains lots of information about the lake which is located nearby which is cool and explains with awesome interactive displays about how the Ballard locks work. Reasonable entrance fee and discounts for students, military, etc. Lots of space to store coats, and lockers for larger items.
Awesome interactive historical displays. Could easily spend the entire day there. Will be sure to return soon. Bring your kids. I love the J P Patches display. I grew up watching his great kids’ show.
Good experience, a lot to see! I had a little over two hours to walk around, but it wasn't enough. I'll definitely be back! So, tip of advice if you actually like to look at all the exhibits in detail, go with enough time! The cafe was a little pricey, for the amount served. Definitely won't return there.
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.
The museum was recommended by our host. It had a good exhibit on the history of how Seattle developed over the years to become the great city it is today. There are many displays and artifacts to view. The parking is challenging. It’s located in the beautiful area of South Lake Union.
