Looking for things to do as the weather changes and outside options become increasingly scarce? We have you covered! Below you’ll find various options for activities and exhibits at local museums and event centers. So get out there, take in the cool crisp air, and take advantage of all the Northwest has to offer this time of year!
- Exhibits at the Seattle Art Museum (SAM)- A trip to the SAM is always an intriguing and worthwhile adventure. Coming up in mid-October, they will be adding 2 new ongoing exhibits: American Art: The Stories We Carry and Deities & Demons: Supernatural in Japanese Art. While these aren’t necessarily Fall themed, they should pique your interest and give you a sanctuary from the drizzly weather sure to come.
- Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience and Dinos Alive Seattle- These two standalone exhibits located right down the street from T-Mobile Park should provide hours of entertainment for you and your loved ones. The two exhibits are right next door to each other, and cater to two completely different groups, so you can fill your cup with a wide array of experiences all in one stop!
- Seattle Asian Art Museum- While this museum is technically an extension of the Seattle Art Museum, it has a very specific collection on display. It portrays artworks from countries located in Asia, including China, Japan, Korea, India, and more. Located in Capitol Hill’s Volunteer Park, and down the street from Washington Park Arboretum and the Seattle Japanese Garden, you could easily make a day trip out of this experience!
- Pacific Science Center- The Science Center has something for everyone. Great for kids, with many hands on exhibits, as well as for adults, with things like a butterfly garden, IMAX theater, Laser Dome, and a Planetarium, this is a must-visit staple of the Seattle area. It also happens to be next door to the Space Needle and the Chihuly Garden, so you can fill your day with fun and memories.
- Woodland Park Zoo- If you’re like me, you love going to the zoo. It’s truly amazing to witness these animals in person, and there are fascinating presentations to attend. They also regularly hold special events, for instance on October 6th there is a “Brew At The Zoo” function where you can sample beer and cider from over 50 local breweries and have up-close encounters at the same time.
These experiences should help keep you busy as the days get shorter, and should offer educational and fulfilling options for the whole family. If you have any questions about locating any of these attractions, feel free to give us a call at the office at (425)-353-8618, we’d love to hear from you!
