  • Can't believe we've never visited this wonderful museum located in an old school in Ballard. Went to see the Marimekko exhibit on the 1st Thursday, which is free. A colorful retrospective of the Finni...  more »

  • Fascinating, top notch recreation scenes complete with sound effects. Wonderful displays and informative movies. A good reminder of what coming to America used to look like.
  • Nice museum to visit, with lots on display. The presentation and information on the exhibits is will done. There is a total of three floors of exhibits that are held in an old school building. The staff are friendly and are helpful. I can't wait to see the new museum they are building on NW Market.
  • This is stupid as I did not go to museum. Brilliant technology to track people. Mind your own business not mine. Zero stars wasn't an option.
  • This is a fantastic museum with an incredible collection. It's easy to get lost in all the rich Nordic heritage of Seattle and this museum does a fantastic job showcasing it. My 6 & 8-year-old kids enjoyed it too, especially when we got to the top floor and saw the Lego displays. It's a special place and the people who volunteer here are very special too.
  • I love the interactive diorama set up that this museum has, I thought it was so much more engaging and all ages inclusive than most museums. I love other museums, but this one was just surprisingly fun, and it's gift shop had a while bunch of actually cool practical items to buy that would be good trinkets as well as functional items.

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
