“We love the Museum of Pop Culture! Housed in a Frank Gehry-designed building (read: crazy folding waves of metal), the MoPOP is tons of fun - there's something for everyone. Exhibits range from Seattle's rock idols to fantasy/sci-fi icons.”

Sculpture Garden
“At the north end of the downtown waterfront, this sculpture park is a beautiful place to go for a walk or rent some bikes and ride through it. Good place to slow down and have a picnic.”

Library
“Dramatic, view-filled facility lending books, films & music & housing numerous public computers. I do suggest you go to visit during Seattle raining days. It is designed for Seattle raining weather, and it will cheer you up a little during Seattle winter raining days. Welcome to Seattle!”

History Museum
“If you have BoA card, entrance is free on first full weekend of every month for one with picture ID. Historic Hotel Tour offered free (no advance reservation required) on Tues-Sun - 10:30am, 11:30am, 12:30pm, 1:30pm, 2:30pm, and 3:30pm and runs about 45 minutes. Please verify tour time before you go. I would highly recommend the tour as the museum itself is small and the historic hotel is only avaible for viewing during those tour times. ”
