The fountain is a great - the museums are fun and there's a great hot dog place to grab lunch. We loved it.

Many people will tell you that Pike Place Market or the waterfront are the heart of Seattle, but in terms of what you can actually see and do, my vote goes to Seattle Center. Here, you have the Space Needle, Chihuly Glass Garden, the Pacific...More

Seattle center has so much going on. All kinds of stuff happening there. Great place just to stroll around and visit or attend concerts at the Arena, see displays and of course the super famous Space Needle. If you have kids definitely bring a towel...More

Particularly if you have kids, this is a nice place to let them run around while you sit and enjoy the activity. It includes a fountain they can play in as well as a playground (near the Pop Culture Museum).

Lots of options including Chihuly museum, Pacific science center, Space needle, cool children's playground, nice food court, and pretty gardens and open grass space to just relax. Can get crowded on weekends with locals and tourists.

The fountain at Seattle center is perfect for people watching. You'll find yourself having fun watching the children try and run from the water, and the best is when the adults participate too. Good wholesome fun for the whole family. At night its beautiful with...More

Traveling and experience of a place like this is very subjective so my advice in the review is really for families of younger children traveling to Seattle downtown. No matter what city you go you will see homeless people, it’s a fact of life but...More

We were surprised by the food court which actually had some good choices, but largely the Seattle Center has only been marginally managed for decades. It's not bad but it's certainly not amazing.

I would say an hour at minimum but two or more hours depending on how long you want to stay in each section. I like to go early and try and beat any crowd that might show up.
