Seattle CityPASS: Museum of Pop Culture

After my roundtrip ride in Seattle Monorail, I walked for a few meters until I reached MoPOP. This was the last attraction that I redeemed from Seattle CityPASS.


Just a recap on the attractions that I redeemed from Seattle CityPASS: Argosy Harbor Cruise, Seattle Aquarium, Space Needle, Chihuly Garden and Glass and lastly, Museum of Pop Culture.

» The Experience «

According to TripAdvisor, it is one of the must visit in Seattle. I attest to that! This museum is mind-blowing starting from its exterior architecture up to its interior. It has everything and pretty laid-out. 

It's a great visit while the weather was gloomy outside. It's definitely a mood changer!!! I enjoyed my stay for 2 hours.

To make most of your visit, visit it early or at least 2-3 hours before the closing time (which I did). 


» The Exhibits (Level 1) «

The entrance and the exit is located on the first floor. There's a huge staircase to access the second floor.

» The Exhibits (Level 2) «

As you climbed the staircase, this massive sculpture entitled IF VI WAS IX: Roots and Branches can be seen. It is also visible on the third floor.


All galleries can be found on the second floor. The famous Sky Church and other museum stories can also be found here.

» The Exhibits (Level 3) «

I enjoyed my visit on Sound Lab because I got to hold different types of musical instruments such as electric guitar, etc. 

Unfortunately, the admission on Minecraft: The Exhibition was not included on Seattle CityPASS. I also didn't buy one so I can't share it here.
