Pacific Science Center
The Pacific Science Centre is one of the top places to visit when traveling in Seattle. With hundreds of interactive exhibits, we recommend allocating at least 2-3 hours here as there is just so much to see and do! Some exhibits are temporary in order to allow new discoveries, however, there are some permanent science exhibits such as the tropical butterfly house, planetarium, IMAX theaters, and even a Wellbody Academy for personal health and wellness.
We recommend to all you traveling stoners to catch a laser dome show at the Pacific Science Centre while in Seattle!

Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum
We feel this is another perfect stoner’s travel destination in Seattle, as many of us can appreciate the beauty of blown glass (like your favorite bong). Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum is a long-term exhibition that is located at the Seattle Center. The exhibit has eight Galleries, a centerpiece Glasshouse, and a lush garden to explore. The museum has been around since 2012 and is admired by thousands of people each year.
The masterpiece is located in the 40-foot tall glasshouse. This is a remarkable space to display his work as the 100-foot long sculpture is suspended from the ceiling. If you can, try to go on a clear, sunny day, and prepare to be amazed by the vibrant colors of the blown glass from above.
The artist, Dale Chihuly was born and raised in Washington and after graduating from university he went on to teach the art of glass blowing. He was so eager to further his skills that he went off to work at the Venini glass factory in Venice. It is there that he unlocked his full potential. Glass art by Dale Chihuly can be found in over 200 museums around the world.
