Learned a lot about Seattle at this museum. Had time constraints so couldn't see it all. Would plan on 3 hours minimum to do it justice.

Very approachable history of Seattle peoples and industries. Well presented and curated collection. Some memorabilia are well known from our time here, others go back to the Gold Rush or Native Americans. Great spot to spend a few hours!

Our first negative impression was just trying to park and enter. The GPS kept telling us to turn in towards the museum, but once there, there is no parking except handicap parking. The second negative impression was on entering and paying. The beautiful building seems...More
