The Seattle Center is where the Space Needle and many of the famous attractons (EMP, Chihuly Glass, Pacific Science Center) as well as the Key Arena and main station for the monorail, are located. The admission may be pricey to go into each but visitors can get the Citypass or coupons from free guide books and get in for cheaper.... More

We were in Seattle for the Memorial Day weekend so went to the Folk Life Festival at the Seattle Center. Wonderful music (we heard Brazilian, Peruvian, country western, blue grass) at different out door venus and music and dancing indoors e.g., Balkans. The story teller venue for the scary tales was full so we couldn't get in- but heard the... More

We strolled through the entire Seattle Center area and were axed at the diverse group of people assembled there. They were hosting a NW Folklife Festival and a fair number of people turned out. There were free concerts at the amphitheater, dozens of vendors, street performers, etc. We ate at Mod Pizza (great pick), took in Chihuly Gardens (nice, but... More

We went to the visitors center in Seattle and the women there recommended the Seattle Center Monorail. We really enjoyed it.

It's not Disneyland, but still a quick and fun way to return to the downtown area. You can start at the Space Needle and go downtown or the other way. Drops you downtown in a nice trendy mall with many fascinating shops

Highly recommend taking the monorail for the quick trip from downtown Seattle to Seattle Center. We spent much of the day there and had lunch.

Worth a visit on the monorail. Just for the experience and it is quite cheap. There are several things to see when you are there. Watch out for saver tickets though as entrance fees are quite high for what they offer to be honest. I really liked the Gates Foundation exhibition down the road too.

Seattle Center is the hub of Seattle, so much to see and do here: EMP, Space Needle, Bumbershoot, events, plays, etc. It had been getting kinda run down but the city has invested time and money into the area and it has been revitalized. A must visit for any tourist.

We visited twice in our first day! Buy a CityPass and you will have many activities to do in the area. The armory has many different places to eat and there are several tables available to eat on outside. There is a giant park and they are building a huge playground that will be open soon. Live music, artists, and... More

This was our first visit to the Seattle Center. The Chihuly Garden was beautiful. We also visited the EMP museum. It was great to try out the different instruments and see Jimmy Hendrix's guitar.
