We stopped by here after a visit to the Space Needle. It's a nice little park to just sit and watch the fountains display.

This is a must in Seattle. There are so many museums/exhibits all in one location. You can easily spend a whole day just here.

Having spent a ton of time here over the past 20 years, I wouldn't rate this place based on one or two activities. Rather, I see it based upon concerts, ethnic celebrations, visits to Key Arena for Sonics and Storm games, and the Children's Museum....More

Loved walknig around the Center. It's clean and safe even at night. The signs make it very easy to find your way around. I loved that there is so much to do or see all in one area!

I would say an hour at minimum but two or more hours depending on how long you want to stay in each section. I like to go early and try and beat any crowd that might show up.
