My son really enjoyed the Seattle Children's museum. There is a lot of different stuff to interact with and multiple free classes a day. The location is great too.

Wonderful children's museum. We went there with 4 and 6 year old but I don't think we would have enjoyed it if they were a year older. They stayed mostly at the small Lego station and really enjoyed the theater area.
