I would love to wow you in this post with pictures of butterflies but I somehow managed to break my card reader this morning. So no pictures until the one I just ordered arrives.
Yesterday, Trina and I went to the Pacific Science Center at the Seattle Center. I have never been before, Trina had. The admission was $15.00 and included a IMAX film. We started with the exhibits. There are four different exhibit halls. Although it was all quite educational and neat, it was really geared towards kids and its the type of place that would have been so much more fun with a 10 year old.
Trina and I agreed that the best part was the butterfly room. Its a climate controlled room literally filled with all kinds of butterflies. To be honest, I wasn’t super excited about it until I actually got into the room. The butterfly room alone was worth the price of admission.
After the butterfly room we went over to the IMAX theatre to see Mt. St. Helen’s only to find out that even if your just a couple of minutes late you won’t get in. So we lost out on the IMAX but we felt we got our money’s worth already and decided to call it a day.
Another thing I would like to go to some day is one of the Science Center’s Laser shows. According to my friend Justin, Laser Queen is pretty sweet.
The overwhelming thing that I noticed about the Science Center is not a positive one. The Science Center is located within the Seattle Center next to the Space Needle and the Experience Music Project so its definitely a touristy area and a place that a lot of visitors envision as “Seattle” – so, why is it so dirty? The entire place needs a power washing to restore the whiteness of its exterior. The doors alone have built up grime from hands touching them. Seriously… take my $15 and buy some 409.
