Where are we going today?

We KNOW science can be fun, but at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, kids can learn it first hand!

The Pacific Science Center is dedicated to igniting the curiosity in every child who visits, and giving them a place where they can enjoy hands-on learning, discovery, experimentation, and even critical thinking!

It's a great place to grow confidence, develop their minds, and really surprise themselves on what they can achieve!

The center is filled with exhibits that each promote the development of a different skill, and are designed for specific age groups too.

Kids can learn about health and wellbeing with Professor Wellbody, and they can even see how their own body works! How fast is your reaction time, or how much energy do you actually produce when you move?

There is even a section just for those smallest sciences, with a stream table and water fun for those little curious tots.

The oceans are illuminated through dramatic tech displays, and kids can explore the waters of Puget Sound with the 100sq ft model!

Nature is called in the Pollinator Garden, where beetles, hummingbirds, butterflies and bumblebees all get together to teach kids about pollination, and the IMAX theater is waiting to really give the kids an experience they might never forget!

The Pacific Science Center is where science, math and technology are made FUN, and kids might not even know they are learning - so let's GO!

    Fun that's worth the money! There is a lot to see and do. I'm an adult who enjoyed it, and there's a lot for kids to do. Many things to try and play with, screens to press, bugs to look at.

    Staff is everywhere so that's super helpful!

    Definitely do the butterfly room. It's 4,000 sq feet of a botanical room with butterflies loose inside.

    The cafe is extremely overpriced. A single cup of yogurt for like $2.75? Small salad for $7? You're probably going to eat here because you're hungry, not because the food is good. Pack snacks and try to avoid...Read More

    I recently attended an Imax movie screening here and was amazed at the cleanliness of the theater and the wide selection of films to view. They had everything from documentaries to recent blockbusters. I had a fantastic time and will definitely be returning.

    Outdated exhibits and a lot of things just downright didn't work. It was a sad visit because you could tell this places prime was long ago. Laser show was laughably bad. My daughter fell asleep during the daft punk show.

    They recently moved all good movies to PACCAR theatre, its a small room with small screen. Worse than college lecture rooms, you might do better watching the movie in a conference room with better seating and sound quality. Boeing theatre used to be good, but they dont show movies there anymore. You would save money going to regular cinema with much more enjoyable experience. If you are driving from Eastside its absolutely not worth it.

    Out of date. Broken exhibits. Not very interactive.

    Go to EMP instead. A lot more fun and interesting and interactive music rooms.

A couple of the outdoor water activities were closed (it's November!), so don't expect to try everything at any time.
