  • We spent a solid few hours playing around in the Seattle Children's Museum. My kids are both 3, and loved all the different spaces they could interact in and play. They're favorite spaces were the different countries and cultures area, especially Japan with the train car, the traditional house set up, and cool vending machine, as well as the forest area. We'll definitely come back and play again another day.
  • Really great museum, my kids loved the variety and it was really well kept. We went for my daughter's second birthday but didn't get there until late afternoon because of nap schedule. We were planning on staying until close at 6pm (to get our money's worth, it's pretty pricey including parking), but the staff start cleaning at 5:30, which I can understand getting a jump start but one of the staff actually told my kids not play with stuff half hour before close! It just turned me off and my 5 year old felt like she had done something wrong. Just close at 5:30 if you're going to make us feel unwelcome in the last half hour.
  • Great place for younger children.. Can easily spend over 3 to 4 hours here... History, human race, life style, geography, nature, science, reading, sea creatures, block play, kitchens, every kind of setting available for children to learn and enjoy. Thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Food court available with all kinds of options including vegan and halal.
  • Love love love. Nothing to say. The staff is perfect smiling helpful ... Activities are great !! Children enjoy every time ! And everything is so clean. You can eat upstairs is super nice
  • It's a fairly large establishment and there are tons of things for the kids to do. We had plenty of fun here and the staff was friendly. I just wished there were more interactive things to do. Overall it felt like an oversized MyGym or Indoor Playground.
