  • After taking our daughter to the children's museum in Olympia, the Seattle children's museum was a huge disappointment. If you can take the time and go to Olympia, you won't be disappointed like you will be in Seattle. Seattle is dated and not very interactive.
  • Because I did not visit the actually musuem, can only speak for the food court. There are a ton of food options and there was plenty seating even on a very busy day. This is the kind of food court where every one in the family can get what they want without compromise.
  • Cool little place to take the kids for an hour or two. The furnishings are somewhat old and outdated, but 6 year olds aren't bothered. It's only $12 to get in and the staff there is very pleasant. Definitely worth checking out at least once.
  • I've taken my daughter a couple of times. She had fun, for sure. But the place is in serious need of updates and upkeep. Lots of old or broken equipment. The grocery store place was completely empty last time we went. We live in Bothell, and when choosing where to take our kid for this type of experience, the Imagine Children's Museum in Everett is by far the winner.
  • Excellent place to take kids from crawling to maybe about 7. Not as much a museum as am amazing play space.
