But we are busy behind the scenes working on updated galleries and refreshed exhibits! We will reopen as soon as we can.

Kids are being vaccinated, our exhibits are getting refreshed, Seattle Center is open and active, and we look forward to reopening the museum in early 2022! We can’t wait to welcome kids and families back into our galleries!

We are anticipating that the King County requirements will still be in place when we open, so prepare for your visit! Based on current regulations, in order to enter the museum, all visitors ages 5 and over will be required to present proof of vaccination, or documentation of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of your visit. Masks will be required for visitors 3 and older.

Welcome to Seattle Children’s Museum!

  • We foster the joy of discovery and ignite curiosity through play!
  • We make space for fun, creative, and hands-on exploration of the world around us.
  • We encourage kids and families to embrace active, lifelong learning.

Our hands-on exhibits and daily programs are designed for kids from birth to age 8. The environment is open-ended, informal, and fun. All children – and their grown-ups – are welcome! Kids of all ages and abilities are encouraged to learn and play together.
