Butterfly House May 14, 2011
Even though I've lived in the Seattle area for 14 years, I've never gone to the Pacific Science Center until today. My favorite part was the Butterfly House and there were hundreds of them flying around. Kids will enjoy the rest of the Science Center, which has lots of hands on exhibits for curious minds.

Pacific Science Center Is A Great Place To Take The Kids Apr 12, 2010
The Pacific Science Center was really entertaining and educational. Do not miss the Naked Mole Rats or the Butterfly Room! It also has great gift shops. The children (I had a niece and nephew with me) really enjoyed the hands on exhibits which are more entertaining to everyone that just static dioramas to stare at. The Dinosaur exhibit with animatromic dinosaurs was really good, although not the best that I have seen but my nephew who LOVES dinosaurs thought it was amazing. Another can't miss exhibit is their insects (which most of them are alive). Although, it left me with the creepy crawly feelings all day!

Pacific Science Center Jan 02, 2009
First money saving tip: buy a City Pass if you plan to go to the aquarium, harbor tour and Pacific Science Center, you will save money! With that being said I think without the City Pass you would spend $15 to get in which includes an IMAX film. There is SO much to do here so make sure you have plenty of time. When you first walk in don't be alarmed if there are a lot of kids there and think you are way too old to be exploring. Just bring hand sanitizer! Anyhow, there are so many exhibits I doubt I could think of them all. Main points of interest, IMAX films, Planetarium, Butterfly house, animal exhibits, insect discoveries (not my fav), technology exhibits, science gizmos and my personal favorite the outdoor exhibits.

I think I like the outdoor ones so much because the weather was nice and it's all involving water. We played chess on a giant board, sat at a ginormous table, looked at bugs, explored space, saw a very sad IMAX 3D film about how the world is ending with the destruction of sardines, played with crazy cool robots and looked at everything that energized your mind. It's worth the visit if you have the time and want to visit every science center ever, like myself.

A worthwhile stop in Seattle Feb 17, 2009
Admission into the Pacific Science Center is only $11 per person, for adults. The Science Center is located on Broad and Second Street in downtown Seattle, just behind the Space Needle.

The entire complex has a wide range of science and technology exhibits. There's not a whole lot of exhibits on the entrance floor. The second floor has a few anatomy/physiology interactive exhibits, a robot you can play tic-tac-toe against, souvenir store, planetarium, a small Pacific Northwest tidepool, insect room, and, my #1 favorite, the tropical butterfly exhibit.

It's 80-degrees in the butterfly room, so be prepared to strip a lot of clothes off if you're the cold-blooded type. You'll more than likely enjoy photographing the butterflies, whether you're into butterflies themselves or not. They make fantastic photo subjects.

There is also an IMAX theater on the premises, which are additional costs if you've purchased the Exhibits Only tickets. You can spend plenty of time at the Pacific Science Center, ranging from a few hours, to all day. And it's a great place for kids if you're traveling with them.
