Very interesting museum. It is free on the first Thursday of each month. If you're interested in how Seattle was settled, this is the place to start.

My kids are not big museum fans, but they had a great time here. It has so many little rooms to explore and wander through usually with windows overlooking the water and a collection of old boats. Mostly this museum, presents the history of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest adn it does so in a very engaging manner with many visuals and period articles.

There is so much to learn about the rich history of this area and this museum makes it fun. Very highly recommended.

The new MOHI is a treasure trove of information about Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. The combination of a great location, the reclamation of a historic waterfront building, and modern multi-media displays make MOHI a top-tier attraction.

Where else can you see a song and dance review about the great fire of Seattle and Martin Cranes recliner in the set Fraser's living room.? Very cool overview of Seattle with a pop culture bent. Cafe is a great lunch spot, too. Take the trolley past all the Amazon offices for a stress free visit.

Another fantastic museum in Seattle. So much to see and do.
Only the most sullen 15 yr old or the world's grumpiest old man will not have fun here.
