Jim’s Accessibility Comments:
Located right next to the Seattle Space Needle, the recently renamed Museum of Pop Culture is exceptionally wheelchair accessible and is fun for the whole family. Plenty of accessible parking, large commercial elevators to all areas and large wheelchair accessible restrooms. It’s easy to spend a complete day or more here. One of my Favorite Seattle Things-To-Do!
