The museum is a little disappointing as it doesn't have very much to do. The kids were able to run around from room to room but again, not much to do in each room. It does pass some time and let's the kids feel "free"...More

My son really enjoyed the Seattle Children's museum. There is a lot of different stuff to interact with and multiple free classes a day. The location is great too.

Wonderful children's museum. We went there with 4 and 6 year old but I don't think we would have enjoyed it if they were a year older. They stayed mostly at the small Lego station and really enjoyed the theater area.
