We really enjoyed this float through the recent past. Many memories for those of us born in the 60’s and 70’s, our kids had fun too. My daughter is on a horror film jag, so that exhibit was super popular

This is an amazing museum!!! Every section of this museum was perfect! If you like pop culture, please go there! The visual identity of the museum was also a plus, not only the architecture is incredible, but also every area is carefully designed to create an experience, very interesting! I recommend sparing 4 hours for this museum. The staff was also very helpful!

We walked around this and rode the monorail through it. Beautiful Gehry building with pinks and golds on the exterior. Highly recommend as architectural stop. You can go inside too and walk around a little without purchasing admission.

I didn't know what to expect but read reviews on TA so I decided to check it out. It was actually pretty cool. They've chosen a few areas of Pop Culture and through displays, artifacts and written content explain why we like these things and how they've influenced us, society and have created an affinity for these certain of things from Jimmy Hendrix and Nirvana influencing music to how Star Trek influenced tv programing. It's included on the Seattle City Pass and the monorail is right there. The monorail actually passes through an extension of the building. Food stands are nearby outside and there's a restaurant inside. Pretty neat was the children's play area out front. Not sure if it's a part of the museum or not but it looked like a great spot for families with kiddos to take a break.

I don't quite know what I was expecting but it really wasn't this. The best part was watching music videos on the big screen as you walk in. The horror show area was neat too but otherwise it wasn't all too interesting and I thought it was poorly laid out.
