Chances are, the software on your computer, the cup of coffee you enjoyed this morning, the jet you flew on your recent flight, the video game you just played, and the online store where you bought nearly everything you need—those fundamental innovations that made your day—all began right here in Seattle. It’s a fact: for 150 years and more, Seattle has been a city on the go, shaping and reshaping the way we live, work and play, and having an outsized impact on the world beyond. MOHAI shares that story.
A great museum, even if you are not new to the area. Not overcrowded either.
There is so much to see in this beautiful museum. You could easily spend hours here learning about the rich history of the city and getting inspired by the leaders in the region. They have interactive and fun exhibits perfect for all ages. Everything is photo-worthy as well. Well worth the admission fee.
