Stay + Play: Seattle Museum Month
For a change of scenery, click your heels together and head to the Emerald City! Seattle is a stop on so many bucket lists because it’s a hub for everyone. It’s well loved for professional sports, exquisite cuisine, famous landmarks and breathtaking views, but Seattle is also a cultural hotspot, with unique, one-of-a-kind museums. And for the entire month of February, you and your family can check them all out and save during Seattle Museum Month! This incredible program offers 50% off admission at 40 participating museums throughout Seattle and the surrounding region for staying at any of the 64 participating hotels in downtown Seattle*.
With a museum for every interest, I don’t want you to miss any so here’s a few of my favorite spots!
MoPop or the Museum of Pop Culture will let you find your inner superhero with Marvel: Universe of Superheroes or channel your inner Guitar Hero by checking out Pearl Jam: Home and Away or Hendrix: Wild Blue Angel.
The Nordic Museum in nearby Ballard, houses the nation’s largest collection of history and heritage of the Nordic countries.
If you’re into innovation, explore technology past and present at the Living Computers: Museum and Lab.
And the family will get a kick out of pulling down the levers of your favorite pinball game at the Seattle Pinball Museum!
Plus, fly sky high at The Museum of Flight where you can see aviation advance before your very eyes.
For something quite dazzling, Chihuly Garden and Glass is not to miss. It will blow your mind with whimsical botanical gardens of blown glass works of art.
And if you want to take a walk on the wild side, head over to Woodland Park Zoo or plunge under the tide at the Seattle Aquarium.
When it’s time to turn in, don’t forget to look around your hotel, too. Many of Seattle’s hotels, like new Hyatt Regency or the iconic Sheraton Grand Seattle, boast amazing collections, too, proving that art is truly all around in Seattle.
So don’t just make a day of it, make a month of it! You’re invited you to explore, be curious and make memories that can only be made, in Seattle. Visit SeattleMuseumMonth.com to learn more.
