  • I have to say that this is the worst laid out museum I have ever been to. There is hardly anything actually on display, and the items on display are in the most awkward positions to look at possible -...  more »
  • When you walk in and see the enormous blue whale skeleton hanging there, you immediately feel very small. Even if you do not actually go into the museum, you can stand and look at this display. The mu...  more »
  • This is a wonderful museum of Native arts from all around the world. On my first visit I thought it was just Northwest art, but when you begin to explore the many rooms you find treasures from all ove...  more »

  • So interesting. The gift shop had some fun items as well. If you want to realize how diverse our ecosystem actually is - this is the place to go.
  • Definitely worth visiting at least one time. You can spend more than 2 or 3 hours there if you want to learn many new things.
  • Have to go see the giant blue whale skeleton but there is also much more to see. Whether you have an interest in the natural world or have a child who likes learning about animals (and isn't scared of animal bones) there is lots to see and do. Membership is inexpensive and there are different exhibitions throughout the year. There is a discovery lab manned by volunteers where you can have a chance to see, touch and feel different animal specimens such as a shark jaw, porcupine fish, insects, birds, various other marine life and land animals. Great for kids as young as 3 or 4 at minimum probably and interesting for elementary aged children as well.
  • Excellent display of Earth's biome and evolutionary history. Began taking my daughter here in grade school, ten years later she's applying to volunteer at the place. Holds the attention of both children and adults, which is an accomplishment.
  • Excellent Museum you have to see it. Good for all ages. Go to the hands on lab at the north west area of museum. Staff are great ask them questions.
