It’s Museum Month in Seattle!
No matter where you live, winter getaways help break up the doldrums and February is the time to visit Seattle.
From Feb. 1-28 get 1/2 price admission at over 40 Seattle museums when you stay at a participating hotel during the month of February! Many of the hotels are also offering special packages, so with the money you save on lodging and admission, it’s really the best time of year for families to stretch your travel dollar.
The Pacific Northwest of the United States is a great place to visit any time of year. The mild climate means it is a haven for lovers of the outdoors, but the Emerald City is also home to some world class museums and galleries. What better way to spend the rainy season than by discovering Museum Month in Seattle?
Those who identify as art lovers, epicureans, outdoorsy, pop culture wonks and pretty much anything in between will find a spot to let their flag fly in Seattle. Families especially will want to check out:
Kids Discovery Museum: Interactive exhibits are the name of the game at the Kids Discovery Museum! If you can, time your visit for a “Messy Monday” when docents lead kids in guided discoveries of the arts…things may get a little messy!
Pacific Science Center: The Pacific Science Center is home to all kinds of science! You can spend time learning about human bodies, dinosaurs, engineering, earth sciences, and loads more at the Science Center in their permanent exhibits, or see something special and new in the featured exhibits. You’ll easily spend the whole day learning and having fun!
Seattle Aquarium: Get wet at the touch tank at the Seattle Aquarium! You’ll be invited to (gently!) touch sea cucumbers, sea urchin, seastars and more. Octopus week is February 18-26, when you can get an in-depth look at the giant Pacific octopus by participating in talks, hands on activities, and feedings.
Woodland Park Zoo: Visit with Yola, the new baby gorilla at the Woodland Park Zoo, and her family of family of western lowland gorillas, plus all the other animals that call the zoo, home. Then, let the kids get in touch with their wild side with a play in the Zoomazium Indoor Nature Play Space!
