    We went here for a few hours before our flight home to California. Fortunately, we had a membership with Discovery Cube so we were able to enter for free. My 8 and 10 year old enjoyed seeing the dinosaurs and walking through the butterfly area.

    This attraction was included in our city pass that my boyfriend and I got before spending the weekend in Seattle. It was a fun experience! We usually have kids with us, but had the weekend for just us. We had a blast! They had a scavenger hunt going on over the weekend, and it

    It's an amazing place to place to visit during your visit to Pudget Sound. With enough knowledge of science, one learns many new things about science. The science models are worth pondering and to remember for the next generation and part of the knowledge. When you enter the

    Thank you for visiting Pacific Science Center and taking the time to write a review. We're so happy you had a great time and enjoyed our Topical Butterfly House. We are delighted to allow guests of the Science Center to experience a biome that can only naturally be found close to the earth's equator between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. The butterflies of course are the main stars, featuring around 20 different species at any one time. Thank you again for your review, we hope to see you back here in the future.

    Spent 3 hours here with our 8 year old son who did not want to leave. Very interactive and tons of stuff for kids to do and become involved in. Prices a little steep but worth it I guess if it can hold a child's interest for so long.

    Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit. We're so glad to hear you and your son had a great time at the science center. If you are a Seattle local, I would recommend looking into our membership options if you think you'll be back at least once more this year. If your visit was recent enough, you could even put the price of those tickets towards your membership. For more information, reach out to our membership department by calling 206-443-2924

We having our annual Brewology event coming up on October 18th - you can taste craft brews from the greater Seattle area and learn how they were made directly from the brewmasters themselves while exploring PacSci.
