We moved to our current location at the heart of the Seattle Center in 1986, creating new exhibits along the way. In 1995, a capital campaign allowed us to expand to the 22,000 sq feet that we fill today.
Since those renovations were completed, over 3.2 million guests have played, pushed, opened and closed, dropped, rolled, picked up, put down, built, crawled into, peeked around, and simply loved the Museum. It’s no surprise that it shows the signs of the wear and tear. The learning objectives of the exhibits have stood the test of time and continue to provide age-appropriate learning for our children. However, the exhibits are worn. Some areas only require paint and elbow grease. However, for other areas it would be more cost effective to remove sections and update with new elements.
Below is a list of immediate wishes for the Museum and the price tag. Big and small, every donation helps us reach our goal.
