Attractions in Seattle

I decided to write one journal entry on several attractions that we visited on our recent vacation.

The Pacific Science Center is similar to science museums such as the Hall of Science in Flushing and the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City.  It aims to teach children the basics of the physical and life sciences.  There was an interesting exhibit about butterflies where visitors can walk into a controlled environment and view them.  We attended a film about the Apollo 11 landing on the moon.

This 1-hour narrated tour offered panoramic and up-close views of Seattle, the shipping port and Puget Sound.

This is similar to aquariums that we have seen in Brooklyn, Miami, and Baltimore.  There were many day camp groups on the day we came.

This museum is unique as it describes through multimedia the history of Seattle from an age when Native American cultures first came into contact with Europeans to the region’s transformation into a major global hub.  There was a special exhibit titled Seattle Style: Fashion/Function which demonstrates the clothing worn in the Pacific Northwest over the years.

It offers exhibits of art from different eras and parts of the world.  I would compare it to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.  There was a special exhibit called Victorian Radicals that featured artwork from British artists in the 19th century.
