Pacific Science Center ignites curiosity in every child and fuels a passion for discovery, experimentation, and critical thinking in all of us. Get hands-on in our Tinker Tank maker space, wander among fluttering tropical butterflies, immerse yourself in a giant-screen IMAX film, explore distant galaxies and meet local scientists and researchers. Don't miss a show in our popular Laser Dome that features a brand new laser system filling the dome with vibrant light and color! Every visit to Pacific Science Center is unique, engaging and fun for adults and children alike. In addition to our daily live science demonstrations, IMAX films, planetarium and laser shows, we feature traveling exhibits that vary throughout the year. Coming up we'll feature Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor (April 8-September 4, 2017). Discover this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to investigate the scientific underpinnings of one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of our time: the terracotta warriors. Delve into the science and technology of priceless artifacts, behold real figures from the terracotta army and unearth the mystery hidden in the tomb of the First Emperor.

There is no better place to take children than to the Science Center. There are special children's activities, especially for them. Many of the exhibits are hands-on. Adults,without children also can have a great time.

The exhibits are really more directed towards children and there wasn't much to do for adults. If you have kids, it might be a good place to go. It just wasn't what we thought it would be. The laser show is nice for all ages.

Considering Seattle is such a tech hub, this museum was surprisingly non-interactive. Looked like a museum I would have seen on a field trip in the 70s.

This is a great place but my son was a little old for it at 15. Certainly worth a visit if you are patient enough for the kids to spend time here,

There are exhibits for all ages at the Science Center, from the youngest toddlers to seniors. Most of the standard exhibits are geared for the 6 - 12 year old. However, first run IMAX movies and Laser shows are great for adults. The PacSci regularly...More

The Terracota Warriors is a special exhibit....when we went, there was an additional charge and timed admission process for it in addition to the general museum admission fee.

You are welcome to bring your backpack into the IMAX theater as long as it will fit under your seat or you hold it in your lap. The aisles must remain clear for safety. If your backpack is too large, we will keep it in a... More
