Fodor's Review

If you're traveling with kids, you already know that a good children's museum is like gold at the end of a rainbow. This colorful, spacious museum, located on the lower level of The Armory in the heart of Seattle Center, provides hours of exploration and fun. Enter through a Northwest wilderness setting, with winding trails, hollow logs, and a waterfall. From there, you can explore the Global Village where rooms with kid-friendly props show everyday life in Ghana, the Philippines, and Japan. Cog City is a giant game of pipes, pulleys, and balls; kids can also test their talent in a mock recording studio. There's a small play area for toddlers and plenty of crafts to keep everyone engaged.
