  • I can't wait to review the new building. But for now, the existing museum is a good example of world history with a hyper-local lens. Many of the great exhibits provide information on how the topics (dinosaurs, early inhabitants, geology, etc) are relevant to the Pacific Northwest. There is an open area where families can watch scientists work on artifacts, and great anthropological exhibits downstairs. There are also games and programs for all ages. I would note that the museum is probably not very fun for children under 6 years old. (my 3 year old only wanted to spend about 20 min in the whole place) Otherwise, a great adventure for almost all ages!
  • We had alot of fun. We took the light rail to Husky Stadium and it was quite a hike. Next time we will research buses there due to the age of our kids. The Dino Dig program was so much fun. Our 2 year old did not leave the dinosaur toys the whole time while our oldest did the archaeological dig and explored the museum so it is perfect for various ages.
  • Smaller, yet significant natural and cultural history museum that is enjoyable for museum goers of all ages. Collections on display include fossils, dinosaurs, local geology, and a thoroughly detailed exploration of the ice age floods which shaped the Pacific Northwest. Also features a large and diverse collection of Native American clothing, artworks and artifacts from the era just prior to, and during colonisation by Europeans. A must-see for anyone interested in learning about local history!
  • Good place. A lot of exhibits if you have the time. Everything very neatly laid out and a lot information. I encourage everyone to go explore this museum. Free to all the first Thursday of each month. It was very fascinatingly. Coming soon fossils T-rex, in 2019.
  • Amazing facilities are you learn a lot from their exhibits, they have going on. Culture, Life before us and the awesome restoration of the huge T-Rex fossil they have make it an awesome place to visit. If you're a student bring your ID as you are given a discount. Can't wait to come back in 2019 for the new facility!
