Seattle Center

The legacy of the 1962 Seattle World's Fair, Seattle Center is a 74-acre urban park and home to the landmark Space Needle, Pacific Science Center, Experience Music Project, Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame, Seattle Opera, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Seattle Repertory Theatre, Intiman Theatre, Seattle Children's Theatre, Seattle Children's Museum and many other attractions.

The Seattle Center also hosts many of the city's largest festivals, including Bumbershoot (the Seattle Arts Festival), Folklife folk art festival, the Seattle International Children's Festival, the Bite of Seattle and many other community events. The Seattle Center is located just north of downtown Seattle in the Lower Queen Anne neighborhood at 305 Harrison Street.

Seattle Center draws you in. Its vibrant pulse brings together people of all ages and walks of life to create thousands of extraordinary experiences that enrich millions of lives each year. Entertainment options abound - starting with 63 free and low cost public programs and over 5,000 shows and events annually. The 74-acre campus, with its 17 acres of open space, is welcoming to all - and is home to more than 30 cultural, educational, sports and entertainment organizations. This treasured urban gathering place exists to delight and inspire the human spirit in each person and bring our rich and varied community together.

From downtown Seattle, visitors can take the Seattle Center Monorail from Westlake Station at Fifth Avenue and Pine Street in downtown Seattle or take a five-minute taxi ride.
