In Seattle Center area near Space Needle. Very interactive. My grandkids aged 7 and 10 loved it. Indoor and outdoor areas. Parking available on west side. Part of City Pass options. Also honors our local science museum membership. Buildings are from 1962 Seattle World's Fair.More

Anyone who is interested in science/geekdom/nature will find something interesting in this enormous science center. Butterfly habitat was a nice surprise alongside one of the most interesting, yet small, planetariums I have ever visited. Worth a visit!

A 2 year old would enjoy a good portion of the museum but might run out of energy quickly with a ton of stimulation. There are a few spots where they do live demonstrations and the touch-tank might be fun as well.
