    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    Outdated exhibits and a lot of things just downright didn't work.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    Out of date.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.
