Pacific Science Center’s New Year’s Eve Party, SPECTRA 2016: New Year’s Eve Under the Arches, invites guests in for an after-hours look at the museum’s fascinating exhibits. However, this isn’t any ordinary night at the museum; in addition to roaming exhibit halls, guests can take in science demonstration, sip signature cocktails, and dance to tunes spun by like KEXP DJs. The excitement culminates at midnight, when the party moves to the courtyard for breathtaking views of nearby fireworks.
Pacific Science Center
Pacific Science Center began its life as part of the United States Science Pavilion at the 1962 Seattle World's Fair. The center continues that tradition of international scientific exploration today, igniting curiosity in more than 1.3 million people across the state every year with its interactive science programs.
- Size: the sprawling center is filled with enough exhibits, science demonstrations, and IMAX movies that you'll need at least four hours to visit.
- Eye catcher: See the majesty of Puget Sound in miniature at the 100 square foot scale model equipped with real tidal action, and touch native animals in the saltwater tide pool.
- Permanent Mainstay: The ridable high rail bicycle that travels 15-feet above the ground on a one-inch wide rail.
- Don't miss: The tropical butterfly house, which maintains a sunny, tropical ecosystem complete with 500 butterflies from South and Central America, Africa, and Asia.
- Hands-on experiments: Found on the science playground, where kids can tinker with an electric motor and explore the motion of a gyroscope.
- Hidden gem: The naked mole rat cam provides a 24/7 view into the intimate world of the mole rat habitat.
