Pacific Science Center, Seattle Reviews - Write a Review
The place is great and full of information, with fun things to do and see. The location is also optimal for visiting the Space Needle and have a quick bite to eat. The problem that I have with the museum is that the price is too much. You should save your money and go to another that costs less. You will get more for your money.
By far the best science museum I've been to. Tons of hands on activities. We (16 and 26) thoroughly enjoyed it and it also would have been fun/age appropriate for younger kids too. Overall it has something for people of any age.
Parking was full when we arrived so we had to park in one of the adjacent garages. The line was very long and they only had two windows open at the time. I HIGHLY recommend going to the Denny St entrance. Much quicker. Used our military discount for admission. The exhibits were very kid friendly and there were plenty interactive ones to keep the little ones entertained. If you're going for general admission, I would recommended children under 10 would find this most interesting. Obviously, my favorite exhibit was the butterfly house
The general exhibits are all VERY kid oriented, age ranges 5-9 I would estimate. We came for the terracotta warriors exhibit and expected something more all-ages, such as the Smithsonian or Houston natural history Museum, but that is definitely not the case. Some of the exhibits are very dated, but if you're a 5 year old kid, you probably wouldn't care... For the size of the place the ticket is a bit pricey - I've taken my nieces to larger and more up to date science museums for much cheaper. The architecture is cool retro-futuristic and historic, it gets some really well done temporary exhibitions, but if you're an adult just skip the gen admin ticket and stick to the exhibitions.
Don't go unless you have a child. I went for nostalgia. Super boring. Also, best to go on a school day early in the day. Too many badly behaved children. I think good parenting has declined severely.
