A Seattle Center Monorail and Children’s Museum Partnership

Seattle, WA (April 14, 2011) – On Earth Day, Friday April 22nd, families have an opportunity to learn about conservation and a local energy-saving icon. The Children’s Museum, Seattle and the Seattle Center Monorail are hosting earth friendly activities for children ages 10-years and younger and their families.

Visitors to the Museum can join Earth Day story times and then tour the underside of the Monorail to see firsthand how it works. The Monorail is the first full-sized commercial monorail system in the country and travels its one mile track at up to 35 miles per hour. Moving up to 250 passengers on each trip, the Monorail runs on just $1 of electricity for each trip.

As an added bonus for families visiting the Museum, after their tour, children can enjoy a complimentary round trip on the Monorail (adults cost $4). Space is limited for each story time and tour so families are encouraged to RSVP at www.thechildrensmuseum.org/earth-day.
