Places to visit that will interest your kids Jun 28, 2008
The Children's Museum:
Seattle Center; 305 Harrison St.; (206) 441-1768; thechildrensmuseum.org
Children explore familiar places from their own neighborhoods and sicover cultures from around the glove in kid-size displays where they can skipper a sea-going ship, visit a tailor shop in Chana or ride a tricycle around the Philippines. Driving a fire engine is child's play, and so is pretending to run a store or restaurant. At the Dunn Lumber Construction Zone, you can build anything you want, and be sure and chekc out the two traveling exhibits that change with the season.
Seattle Center; 305 Harrison St.; (206) 728-1585; funforest.com
There's fun for everyone in this maze of games, rides and things that make you happy. Try your skill at the 25' climbing wall or the Max Flight Rollercoaster simulator. Play laser tag, miniature golf or jump aboard a bumper car. Or play a video game, throw darts or try your hand at the shooting gallery.
Pacific Science Center:
Seattle Center; 200 Second Ave. N.; (206) 443-2001; pacsci.org
Budding scientists of all ages will enjoy this interesting, exciting and educational Seattle favorite. Go back in time to meet roaring dinosaurs or tiptoe into a special sunroom to watch a butterfly emerge from its chrysalis. Kids love the giant rebotic insects, star-studded planetarium and the two-ton granit ball they can spin with their bare hands.
