The building for the Pacific Science Center ("PSC") was constructed for the 1962 World’s Fair.  Its most noticeable exterior feature is the group of five white, 110 foot arches that add a Gothic flair to the Seattle Center campus. 

The PSC is all about educating kids about science.  It has a many hands on exhibits, two IMAX theaters, laser shows, and a planetarium.  It draws around 1,100,000 visitors annually. It also stages special exhibitions such as the King Tut exhibit.

Some of the popular exhibits include the butterfly house, the dinosaurs, and the insect village.

If you are a first time Seattle visitor, have more than two days in town, and have kids, you may want to visit the PSC. The kids will enjoy playing around the PSC.
