The Seattle Center is located in the northern part of Seattle and contains the Space Needle, the Experience Music Project, and outdoor park area. A monorail stops here, making the Seattle Center a convenient place to visit.Recommended for:

Seattle center is the playground for some of Seattle's most famed attractions. The space needle that is the iconic structure of Seattle, the Chihuly garden and glass hosting the magnificent glass creatures of Dale Chihuly, the EMP museum with its strangely hip architecture.Recommended for:

Great outdoor space that connects all the great exhibits in the vincinity. During the summer they offer movie showings on the large screen - get there early though, people were staking their spots out as early at 4/5pm! Lots of little shops and restaurants nearby as well.Recommended for:

Lots going on here, Space Needle, Science museum and EMP museum to name a few. The Chulilly Glass museum is there-- we didn't go in but peeked at the amazing glass sculptures. Out hotel was a block away so we took advantage of the monorail which drops you down town after a short but pleasant ride.Recommended for:

Seattle Center isn't just for tourists to go up into the Space Needle. Every month the Center hosts an ethnic festival: French, Japanese, Irish, etc. The food court has been completely renovated and is now the site of a thriving happy hour scene. Most people don't know that the Seattle Shakespeare company is located in the basement and produces wonderful plays at a reasonable cost. The new Chihuly glass museum shows off a craft Seattle has long been known for, glass. The outdoor lawn and fountain fill with people on sunny days or when a festival is taking place like Taste of Seattle, Bumbershoot and others. The Center is also home to the Seattle Rep, home to the best productions in the city. If you're lucky, you might be at the Center during food truck roundup where several of the city's growing fleet of food trucks gather in one spot so you can sample several.Recommended for:

Elvis Presley had a penchant for filming movies at iconic vacation destinations. His 1963 classic “It Happened At The World's Fair” was shot on location at the very place designed specifically for the World's Fair that occurred in 1962: Seattle Center. Though not much but the Space Needle looks like it did all those years ago, there's still a lot to see at the family-friendly Center. The nearby Experience Music Project even has an annual Elvis tribute contest for super-fans of the King.Recommended for:

There is always so much going on at Seattle Center. The Space Needle is there, for starters, and that is really a no miss with a Monorail ride for first time Seattle visitors!
New to the Seattle Center is the Chihuly Arts and Gardens at the base of the Space Needle. With fabulous glass arts once featured and famed over the canals in Venice this exhibit is certain to bring delight.
Just a short walk away is The Pacific Science Center where for the next few months the King Tut Exhibit is featured. See the IMAX movie and then tour the exhibit before it leaves the United States! It is simply fascinating.
McCaw Hall is the theater for classical ballet from the excellent Pacific Northwest Ballet School. The Children's Museum is terrific for the younger children to explore and learn.
There is so much always going on at The Seattle Center. If you go to Seattle, the Seattle Center is a must stop.Recommended for:

Home of the Space Needle's Revolving restaurant and observation deck, 500' above ground. Breath taking views of the city, surrounding water and mountains. Short distance, 1.7 miles, from the ferry terminal, the waterfront and Pike's Market. Linked directly to Seattle downtown by the monorail.Recommended for:

Seattle Center is a nice collection of random things, some of which can be probably 2 stars where as others can be 5. I am thinking of this place as a tourist joint so overall I think it deserves 4 stars.
A few things of notable mention here include the Seattle Space Needle, which is always interesting even though I've probably been up there like five times ... but only once when it was sunny! so that was really pretty. Also there is sort of an on-going year-round carnival here where you can find all kinds of yummy treats from the good ol' days like kettle corn.
You will also find the science museum and the music museum here. Both are ok, nothing spectacular but will kill a few hours if you're with tourists or family.
My favorite part of this place is the fountain. I recently discovered it and it was really fun to run through the HUGE crater that is the fountain and try not to get splashed along the way.

ana mazing factory! where you'll find technological nuances and design innovations of powered flight, computers in the design zone computers to begin digitally designing a commercial jet of your own, interactive Galleries where you’ll be able to modify, test and finalize your design at touch-screen computers before printing off the final schematic of your jet.

This is what is left after the Seattle Worlds Fair. Many buildings are still there and they are used for cultural centers, museums, and other interesting things. Much of the area is also a park. After the monorail ride from downtown this is a nice place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

I have always seen Seattle Center as the heartbeat of Seattle. It's constant, always there and although I don't visit it often I know it's the same place it always has been. The venue overall has changed a bit over the years, but it's a great destination for any tourist who likes to experience the history and culture of a city.
I definitely recommend that any visitor to Seattle spend at least one day visiting the Seattle Center, Space Needle and Pike Place Market. These destinations may not be the most family friendly, but they are iconic Seattle experiences and a trademark of the city.
Be aware that certain times of the year/week these venues are a lot busier. Depending on the experience you are looking for you will want to plan accordingly.
