Really a great place especially with kids of all ages. It was huge so we didn't make it though everything. Exhibits covered the spectrum from dinosaurs to outer space, insects and reptiles (including a tropical butterfly room) to local sea life to the wonders of the human body. Each of the exhibits were geared well so everyone couldl enjoy and there were staff members there to answer questions and point out things we had missed.
We had the City Pass which also included a free IMAX movie so was a great deal.

Want to see your child speechless in fascination? The Pacific Science Center will always deliver that moment of awe in your child! With ever changing exhibits and a seemingly endless opportunities to explore, learn and discover, children and parents alike will enjoy a memorable experience no one is soon going to forget.
Be sure to bring the camera and extra batteries! There are so many photo opportunities at PSC.
This is a full-day family event so definitely go prepared with everything you may need as you won't want to be making extra trips out to the car if you can avoid it.
Extra Tip: Be sure to check out what's being offered at the IMAX theater. It's not an absolutely necessary part of the experience, but definitely is breathtaking if they are offering something of interest to your family.
Food: I recommend bringing a lunch with you for the family. There is a selection of food available for purchase there, but it's a little expensive.

This weekend was a special event where all sorts of scientists were onsite doing interactive exhibits with the children. We brought our 8 year old and she absolutely had a great time learning about the stars and constellations in the planetarium, driving a replica Mars rover, pretending to be a narwhal, hanging out with butterflies, exploring an arctic camp, and learning about diatoms. This is highly recommended for children and their grownups.

*WOW* The Pacific Science Center is one of the greatest places in Seattle! Learn about all kinds of interesting scientific subjects. Visit the store! Right now for the next few months, the King Tut Exhibit is ~Rockin~! It is a must see before it leaves the United States!

This is for the IMAX
I 'm sorry but we sat in the smaller of the IMAX. Yes, the screen was huge and the sound was great but the seats were small as f**k.
This theater was made for kids because the space between your knees and the set in front of ou was NON existent. I felt so bad or the guy next to me bc he was tall! He looked so uncomfy sitting there. He was trying to position himself but his knees were just hitting the front's seat.
I'm 5'5.5 and I was feeling uncomfy... Imagine someone even taller!
Yeah, the screen and sound was real IMAX but I rather feel comfy than see the quality. I felt like a giant.
If people wanted to get past you... You HAD to stand up to let them through versus being able to move slightly.
Concession: out of a tent and vending machines. Popcorn $5?! Ugh.
Screen is huge! Sound is good but no. I wouldn't go there bc I felt so uncomfy and confined.
