  • Maybe it's because I haven't been to other children's museums, but my 18-months old toddler and I really enjoyed our two hours there. The exhibits/toys are old and need a makeover no doubt, but it's not that bad.
  • It's a pretty cool place for the kids. Good food court located just above it for the adults too. Plenty to do to wear them out if needed
  • 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.
  • Small on the first look this museum could take the whole day to explore. It has few theme sections each of which is interesting and has loots to do.
  • 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.

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.
