“A Quiet Treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

An excellent, interactive, and educational spot for children and adults five years old and older. Adjacent to the Hands On Children Museum this free resource deserves your visit if you have a curious child or adult in your household who likes to understand how things work.

“Very fun to play”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Very fun to play with the Goeducks, and the kids love getting to touch all of the sea life. This is a great part of our Northwest heritage here around the Puget Sound.

“Wet Science Center is a good place for students”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

The LOTT Clean Water Alliance is a great day out for the class room. It is educational for all ages levels. Students learn about the relationships between people and water that encourages environmental stewardship.

“A Good Complement To The New Children's Museum Next Door”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

The WET Science Center is o.k. for a short visit. They have some hands-on exhibits that the kids will enjoy such as seeing how much water you use for different home activities. There are a couple of areas with preschool toys. The Center is small and somewhat dark. The atmosphere and staff are not as "kid friendly" as the Children's Museum next door, however, a combination visit is worthwhile. The WET Science Center holds children's activities sometimes. And the new outside plaza is definitely worth walking through, specially on a nice day.

“We built a birdhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

The museum is well set up. There is a great auditorium and it is suitable for work projects. The grounds outside are worth a visit. There is plenty of easy parking. It is a great place to take children.
