You can still get in on Seattle Museum Month’s fantastic savings, but you’ll have to hurry. You’ve got until the end of February to take advantage of this unique offer, and you’re not going to want to miss it.

What Is Seattle Museum Month?

First, did you know Seattle is home to several world-class, one-of-a-kind exhibitions? Other cities may have Monets and Renoirs, but Seattle has the guitar Jimi Hendricks played at Woodstock and the world’s only revolving glass floor!

Seattle Museum Month (SMM) invites tourists and locals to enjoy a stay at one of almost 70 participating hotels. When you check in, ask for a museum pass and you’ll receive 50% off admission at more than two dozen Seattle museums. The pass is good for you and three guests, so the savings really can be significant.

“Seattle Museum Month is the perfect opportunity to discover some of the region’s most impressive and renowned museums at an unbeatable value,” said Ali Daniels, Chief Marketing Officer at Visit Seattle. “It’s also a great excuse to explore the wide range of offerings, from the Seattle Pinball Museum to the LeMay America’s Car Museum.”

Your Chance to Enjoy a Luxurious Stay in Seattle

If a visit to the Emerald City has been on your bucket list, this is the perfect time to make it happen. Whether you want a hotel that meets your basic needs of a nice place to sleep and a complimentary breakfast, or you want to live it up and enjoy a weekend in an upscale accommodation, you’ll find a variety of hotels to choose from.

Some hotels, like the LOTTE Hotel in downtown Seattle, offer full service amenities such as turn-down service, fine dining with a view of Elliot Bay, and soothing aromatherapy massages in the luxurious Le SPA de l’hôtel LOTTE. You can start and end your museum days relaxing in comfort at this four-star hotel.

Other hotels participating in Seattle Museum Month include the Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Grand Hyatt Seattle, Hilton Garden Inn, and Holiday Inn, to name a few. You only need to book a one-night stay to get the museum pass, by why not plan to spend more than one night enjoying the city?

The variety of museums on the list may surprise you. You can have a ball at the Seattle Pinball Museum, monkey around at the Woodland Park Zoo, wing your way to the Museum of Flight, and if the Museum of Pop Culture sounds good, you can visit there, too. (If you’ve priced tickets lately, you’ll know what a fabulous savings SMM can be!)

A few of the other museums include the Museum of Glass, Pacific Science Center, Chihuly Garden and Glass, and the Seattle Art Museum.

Planning Your Museum Visits

Your travel companions will help dictate how you spend your time in Seattle. If you’re traveling with children, the museums you chose may be different than those traveling without.

Some locations, like the Seattle Aquarium, are popular with kids of all ages. Located on Pier 59, the Aquarium offers visitors a chance to roll up their sleeves and get their hands wet exploring different exhibits.

Cari Garand, Training Coordinator and Certified Diver encourages people to “come explore this world with us and see what we can find at the Aquarium.”

Although not technically a museum (and not part of the Seattle Museum Month pass) the Seattle Space Needle is especially popular with families wanting to experience the iconic exhibit. Not only does it provide a 360-degree scenic view of the city from the 500-foot tall viewing platform, “The Loupe” is the only revolving glass floor in the world. You can sit down, stretch out, pose with your friends and snap selfies to prove you were brave enough to step out on the see-through floor.

If you’re visiting any of the museums near Seattle Center, you might as well visit the Space Needle, too!

If you’re really ambitious, you can take full advantage of your 50% off pass and visit as many museums as time allows. The more you visit, the more you’ll save!
