What people are saying about Seattle

Unlike a few other reviews on here I really enjoyed MoPop. Fantasy, horror, and Disney sections were great. Interesting to see items from our favorite shows over the years. The colored glass was amazing below the space needle. Also nice to go up the space needle twice. Once during the day and once near sundown. Aquarium and zoo were what one would expect. But nice location on the aquarium near Pikes Place city market. Overall a good time and visit to Seattle with our 12 year old daughter.

We got in with no problem to the attractions it lists and definitely saved money using the tickets!
