Pacific Science Center

Belltown & Seattle Center

This interactive museum of science and industry once housed the science pavilion of the 1962 World’s Fair. Today the center features virtual-reality exhibits, a tropical butterfly house, laser shows, holograms and other wonders of science, many with hands-on demonstrations. Also on the premises is the vaulted-screen IMAX Theater, a saltwater tide pool and a planetarium. IMAX movies and special temporary exhibits cost extra.
