4 museums near each other plus Space Needle. EMP was an incredible music and pop culture experience and was the Chihully glass gardens were beautiful. Walked from waterfront there then took monorail to downtown. 3 block walk to Pikes market

So glad we remembered to try this monorail. We had parked near the space needle and wandered downtown. The kids were tired but the monorail perked them up and made for a fun ride back to the car! Well worth the small price we paid!

There is always a lot to see at Seattle Center. Even if rainy it can be fun to poke around. Kids play in the fountains. Musicians tucked along walkway near food and gift vendors. Catch a glimpse of Chihuly Art without going into the exhibit, though if you do it's wonderful. Lots of inexpensive food choices in the Armory.

Beats walking and for $4.50, round trip from our hotel, it was perfect. Clean and nice. You can catch it from inside the mall. A short ride from start to finish.

We rode the monorail after parking so we could move around downtown without having to keep driving. A short ride but it was nice to see things from a different view.

Took the Monorail from the Space Needle to Westlake mall downtown. A two minute ride! Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. Very easy to use with a wheelchair. Only $1 each way for seniors.

Seattle center is a park with a bunch of attractions like Space Needle, Children Museum etc. Most of them are monumental structures which are quite expensive and they meant to overwhelm you. However, the attraction I got most excited about was a small children playground next to EMP museum. When I first saw teenagers climbing the tower - I thought... More

A collection of museums and things with admission charges. If your a tourist, sure see it once. Some I liked, some not so much.

Contains the chihuly gardens, space needle, emp museum and a nice park with vendors for lunch or selling Native American products. You can't miss the sign coming past the space needle.

Thank wick1979
