We chose to go to the Pacific Science Center after spending the morning at Woodland Park Zoo. Our thought was that it would offer a cool place to explore during the hottest point during the day. Our daughters, ages 14 and 11 enjoyed jumping from exhibit to exhibit and trying all the hands on activities. Mom and Dad participated a little bit, but enjoyed that there were plenty of places to sit down and observe as the kids explored.
This is a medium sized science museum and it's obviously that parts (like the mechanical dinosaurs) are very dated and other parts have been recently updated. It made for a cool and entertaining afternoon. We were able to see everything that interested us in a few hours.
Parking here is in a garage next to the Science Center and isn't cheap (like the rest of downtown) however, you could easily park once and see the museum, the Chilluy Museum and the Space Needle all at the same time.
Overall I don't need a second visit here - but the kids enjoyed it and while not a highlight of the trip we certainly thought it was worth our time.
