Seattle Childrens Museum

Earlier this week, we had a day full of adventure at the Seattle Childrens Museum, which is situated in the lower level of the Armory at the Seattle Center.

The optometry office was a big hit for our bespectacled girl. She loved having the opportunity to wear the optometrists jacket.

She loved getting a closer look at the equipment where she could explore and study it in a way that was not possible when she got her eyes checked at the real optometrists.

She got an eye exam as well

 

Daddy was a patient patient, and even tried on her glasses.

There was a model market where they could practice shopping for food and making healthy choices.

The scale was a big hit.

And while we know that all the world is a stage, especially for a 6-year-old, nothing compares to some uninterrupted time on a real stage with mom and dad (and others) in the audience.

And then there was a magical fantasy room, full of books, and fairies, and a happy little girl who really didn’t want to leave.

The children’s museum is designed for kids up to ten, but I think where it really shines is for the preschoolers. It’s a lovely place to spend the day with the little ones, especially the toddlers and up to 5 or 6, but I think many kids would outgrow it before they reach ten.
