Discover for yourself the history and tradition of Seattle and the American Northwest at Museum of History & Industry. Inside the museum you'll find one of the most comprehensive collections of artifacts in the whole region. See the first Boeing commercial plane, take a look through the original World War II submarine periscope, and travel through Seattle's history from the city's beginnings to the modern age. In addition to the permanent displays, which show just a fraction of its collection, the museum regularly sets up themed exhibits (look up the schedule online before you arrive). The museum is easily accessible via public transportation, and there is also designated parking for visitors who arrive by car, as well as the historical wharf for those who prefer to sail in.

It presents part of the history of the United States and the industrial part. Good museography and I loved it
I have not been to MOHAI since it moved to the Lake Union location. I thoroughly enjoyed the fashion exhibit and the permanent exhibits always bring back fond memories for me! I decided to purchase a membership so I can come back with friends and family when they are in town. I especially love the interactive displays and I know my grandchildren will enjoy them as well!
Not from here but went with two people that are and they enjoyed it as much as I did. It was fun watching them tell stories and fill me in on some things I would never know about. The gift shop is really cool and reasonably priced. The cafe was also nice and relaxing.
