Pacific Science Center Imax Tickets
The Pacific Science Center Imax theater is one of our favorites. It is the largest theater screen in Washington and offers 2D and 3D experiences. It is lots of fun watching movies inside the Pacific Science Center Imax theater, either as part of your visit in general or just to see a movie. The Imax theater does not offer reserved seating, so you will want to arrive early for the best pick of seats. Pacific Science Center Imax Theater tickets are offered in two different categories. Imax Premium Movies, and Imax Documentaries. They are priced as follows:
A couple of updates now that the Pacific Science Center is back open again:
Homeschool Days – They used to offer special homeschool days. It looks like they may have discontinued that, but do offer group rates (explained above) if you wanted to get a couple of homeschool families together to visit under those rates.
Note – The Pacific Science Center use to be included with Seattle’s CityPass program, but it is no longer on their list of included attractions. We will update it here if we see it return as part of that program.
There is so much to do in this area of Seattle for families, and they even offer a free shuttle down to the waterfront if you wanted to make a full day out of your visit. Right at the Seattle Center is my kids favorite playground.
The Artist at Play Playground – Seattle Center
Another thing my kids love to do when they visit the Pacific Science Center is to go early and visit the Artist Playground at the Seattle Center and the Water Fountain on a warm day. You can read our review here on that if you want to make a full day of fun at the Seattle Center!
