Seattle has a rich history, and it is presented here at the MOHAI in wonderful detail. I personally love this museum, as it holds a lot of history for this third generation Seattle native, however my children do not hold the same fondness for this place. While there are a couple of hands-on exhibits (salmon fishing, canning room), most of the information presented here requires a lot of detailed reading and the meaning lessons behind many of the displays is lost on younger children. I would say this museum is best for kids 9 and up, or with younger kids if you don't mind racing through and missing much of what's here. Sensitive issues, such as details of the Japanese-American internment camps are touched on. Favorite exhibits include the great Seattle Fire, and the modernization of the fish canning industry.

This is a great museum highlighting the history of the Seattle area. There are great hands-on exhibits including: a fishing vessel, a salmon cannery, and a cannery house. Special exhibits make it a new experience each visit.
