Pacific Science Center
Located at Seattle Center, this hands-on museum features IMAX movies and laser shows, in addition to ever-changing exhibits that include displays on dinosaurs, whales, robots and much more. Previous exhibits have included a tropical butterfly house and an insect village. This is a fun and educational place to take children but adults will learn a lot and enjoy themselves as well. Check website for ticket prices; package deals are also available. Children under four are not admitted to planetarium shows. There is an on-site cafe.
This is a great place to go if you have kids. Kids will find everything interesting from the fake dinosaurs to the butterfly house. There are also seasonal/monthly exhibits that change. For example, in August they hold "Toy Test" where you can try out all of the newest games before they evem come out on the systems. There is an imax theater. Very fun for the first three times, but the exhibits hardly ever change so you might fall asleep by the 4th time you visit.
We have been members for several years. The traveling exhibits are always top notch and very educational - great for all ages and often geared toward adults. The butterfly house feels like a vacation and the IMAX movies are great. The planetarium is very nice. Most of the rest has a real kid feel to it. Go during school hours to really get the most out of the exhibits.
True, True...you should get a City Pass in order to experience Seattles biggest attractions, but I wouldn't waste my time going to the Pacific Science Center. If you buy a city pass go only because you have already paid for it and only if you could not give it to someone else. This place is truly for kids. There wasn't anything interesting and it reminded me of a Childrens Science Museum. Not exactly something I would want to showcase for ADULTS in an ADULT city pass!
