“Out in Space”

Seattle Public Library
Ranked #12 of 457 things to do in Seattle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 22, 2013

The last time we visited we forgot to see what Rem Koolhaas did to Seattle. Well, he did a fine job. A big shiny thing when the sun catches it right! Inside you'll hae to take the elevator to the top floor and walk down. It's something else and a visit is free! As are the bathrooms ;-)

Magnificent library inside and out. Right in the middle of downtown surrounded by colorful trees, this building welcomes all, whether you like libraries or cool architecture. Must visit.

This is certainly one of the most unique buildings you can visit. Not just in Seattle, but the world. And it's completely free. Not sure why you wouldn't visit. Use the spiral walkway.

we zoomed up the elevator to look out on a magnificent view of Seattle. The strolled down the ramp looking at the stacks , tables, many ports for our electronics down to the bottom to the spacious lobby like ground floor with cafe bar.

Don't miss it!
