    Huge collection and great exhibits! Sometimes the curatorial voice is lost...visitors get a jumble of info that doesn't always weave itself together, and leave asking what it all meant

    This is an absolutely fabulous museum. Lots to see and do but bring the hand sanitizer, as there is also a lot to touch! Plan on at least 3 full hours to see everything.

    With over 60,000 visitors every year, it is one of Seattle's most popular museums, & preserves & promotes the history of the Pacific NW. The museum houses a vast collection of artifacts from the area.

    Bobo, the Woodland Park Zoo’s gorilla, was one of Seattle’s biggest draws through the 1960s. His stuffed pelt is still one of this museum’s star attractions today. (From Aerial America) Read more

    Built in the period leading up to America’s involvement in World War II, the Naval Reserve Armory served as a training center for decades, into the late 1990s.

    We dare you to find the USS Colorado deck gun in the Garden of Iconic Objects and then head into the Hall of Icons and Eye Candy and find a pink tow truck.

    Did you know? The roots of MOHAI go back to 1911, to a costume party celebrating the anniversary of settlers arriving at Alki beach. Guests wore historic costumes and ate clam chowder. Read more
