My son really enjoyed the Seattle Children's museum. There is a lot of different stuff to interact with and multiple free classes a day. The location is great too.

Wonderful children's museum. We went there with 4 and 6 year old but I don't think we would have enjoyed it if they were a year older. They stayed mostly at the small Lego station and really enjoyed the theater area.

We are in town with our one year old and the Seattle Children's Museum was a fun way to spend time exploring with her. The activities are set up for child led play - for example there's a "camping" area with a stove, pots and...More
