The entry was a little on the expensive side considering the size of the museum and the exhibits. The exhibits focused on explaining Seattle's history and development, and pay tribute to notable Seattleites.

This is primarily a history of Seattle museum, with the addition of the area's industrial history. The exhibits are clear, if not exactly inspired. There are usually several historic boats anchored there, some of which offer tours. Parking can be expensive and distant.
