    Great deal with the city pass! Includes IMAX and a planetarium show so it’s a steal

    Nice museum with fewer crowds. Somewhat older and has a lot of space that seems under-utilized. Kind of spread out. Special exhibit of Terra Cotta Warriors from China was awesome.

    The exhibits are a lot of fun for the little ones. Charging extra for exhibits is for the birds though.

    Everything is super interactive. They encourage touching and playing by default. The insect spot was a big hit and we always stop in at the butterfly pavilion which is a hit for me and the kids.

    Check the exhibition exhibits before your visit and check if there is an extra fee for exhibitions.

    I suppose this was a nice family friendly place it just wasnt what I excpected. I suppose I should have done my own research on the place before attending

    Been here many times, first time I was probably 8-9. Great place to learn about Science as a kid or with kids. See the Space Needle too.

    We have three words for you when it comes to whether or not to visit the Pacific Science Center: Queen laser show. Bring a blanket and be prepared to sing along.

    We visited on a Saturday afternoon and thought the experience was lackluster at best. Most of the exhibits were either outdated or broken. Save your money and skip the Halloween planetarium show.

    Laser show is a major improvement over what I've seen two years ago. Highly recommended. They could turn up the volume, though.
