The Children's Museum is in the basement of the Center House at Seattle Center, which is partly why Seattle Center is such a great place to spend a day with the kids. The museum includes plenty of hands-on cultural exhibits, such as the Global Village, which allows kids to visit Ghana, the Philippines, and Japan; a child-size neighborhood; a Discovery Bay for toddlers; a mountain-wilderness area; and other special exhibits to keep the little ones busy learning and playing for hours.
