If you have any interest in learning about Seattle's history, then 30 minutes here is the perfect place to learn. Run by the National Park Service, it's a good history of what helped Seattle grow in the late 1800's. Free. Worth your time.

Great film and exhibits. The park is worth a visit and is free. Good gift shop. The history of this short period in time is really interesting, why did they do it?

It is inside. It's an old hotel that is now a Gold Rush museum.
