Where Imagination Comes Alive . . . For Everyone!

Through the following programs, the Museum gives away over $160,000 in free services each year. As a non-profit organization, these programs would not be possible without our generous donors, including the City of Seattle and the attendees of our annual Fall Breakfast.

Donation Only Hour:

The last hour of every weekday (4:00pm – 5:00pm), we accept any amount of payment for regular admission to the Museum. Your family simply pays what you can afford to enter and play.

WA EBT or Food Stamp Card:

Show this card at the box office and receive $1.00 per person daily admission for the cardholder, your partner, and your dependent children. (Washington Residents Only)

WA DSHS Services Card:

Show your DSHS Services Card to receive $1 admission for the individual who is named on the card (Washington Residents Only).  Adults must have matching Photo ID.  Please note that due to the regulations for this program, we can only accept the ProviderOne Services Card pictured below- not letters, forms, or other types of insurance identification cards. 


Sensory Sensitive Hours:

On the first Saturday of each month, we open our doors early with minimal sounds and lights so that kids who benefit from a less stimulating environment can enjoy the Museum.  You can learn more on this page and pre-purchase your tickets. We require that tickets be pre-purchased in order to help us staff the event appropriately.

Passport 2 Play:

In addition to the programs listed above, we partner with community agencies in King, Pierce and Snohomish County to distribute free admission coupons. The organizations help us place the coupons in the hands of those who could not otherwise afford to visit the Museum.
