Seattle is a city that has always taken pride in it’s overwhelming support for the Arts and Education and as a result, we have an extensive array of world class Museums showcasing some of the best in Science and Art as well as a few with a very Seattle vibe. While the weather outside might not be ideal, you can still take a few hours to refresh your mind and have a bit of fun learning a thing or two in the process. Here are some of the best.



MoPOP: Formerly known as The Experience Music Project, this museum recently rebranded itself as The Museum of Pop Culture. Located on 5th ave in the shadow of the Space Needle, the architecture alone has been a major topic of debate. Known for a constant array of cutting edge exhibits, you can spend hours looking at antique guitars or even recording a demo in one of the many interactive areas . Be sure to check out the Star Trek  exhibit before it closes on March 5th.

SAM: The Seattle Art museum, located only blocks away from Pikes Market in the middle of downtown is one of the most beloved in the city for bringing together a wide range of both classical and contemporary works as well as bringing attention to lesser known Artists. If you’re looking for something to do on the first thursday of the month, the museum offers free general admission and half off special exhibits  http://www.seattleartmuseum.org/



Asian Art Museum: Located in Volunteer Park in the Capitol hill neighborhood, this museum is a celebration of the tremendous influence this community has had in shaping the city. While it is one of the smaller museums, it is well worth the trip see the art of this many cultures under one roof.
