Welcome to Seattle Children’s Museum!

We foster the joy of discovery and ignite curiosity through play!

We make space for fun, creative, and hands-on exploration of the world around us.

We encourage kids and families to embrace active, lifelong learning.

Our hands-on exhibits and daily programs are designed for kids from birth to age 10. The environment is open-ended, informal, and fun. All children – and their grown-ups – are welcome! Kids of all ages and abilities are encouraged to learn and play together.

Timed Entry Reservations are required to guarantee entry and are available two weeks in advance. Admission is paid upon arrival for your reservation.
