“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We visited the Space Needle and then walked through the park. There was a fountain that ran a show with music - really fun to watch.

“A little confusing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

The Seattle Center is bigger than I expected. Of course, it was easy to find the Space Needle. However, we got lost trying to find the Childrens Museum. Ended up passing through two buildings before asking someone to find the entrance. Also, it is best to park around the area on Sundays, free parking.

“Beautiful park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Our Segway tour included Seattle Center. Lots of stuff to do and see, but really perfect for just enjoying the day. I loved the fountain and watching kids play in it. Be sure to hang around for the show!

“Nice Museum Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Nicely landscaped park with lots of things to look at even if you don't go in anything. But you'll want to.

Home to Pacific Science Museum, Chihuly Glass and Gardens, Space needle, EMP Museum, IMAX cinema, monorail and more. Even the amazing Teatro Zanzinni is adjacent to this park. There's also a food court in the old armory building.

Park is clean and beautifully landscaped to a Disney-esque standard. Look for the amazing soaring lacy arches left over from the World's Fair, which look vaguely like man eating aliens from a B movie.

Park is blessedly free of the vagrant element that plagues many other Seattle sights.

Be sure to look for combo tickets (for example the Chihuly-Space Needle duo) that can save you some money. And do walk down the hill to the Olympic Sculpture Park. Small on sculpture but big on views and a nice walk.
