First Week of 2011 at Seattle Center
January 4, 2011
The Seattle Center Monorail is now open earlier in the mornings! We open everyday at 8:30am! Sunday – Thursday we close early at 8:30pm, but Friday and Saturday we’re still open until 11pm. This winter schedule is effective through April. Make sure you check our rider alerts on our website for schedule changes. http://www.seattlemonorail.com/rideralerts.php
There’s plenty to do at Seattle Center! Here’s our top picks for the week!
- Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition is open at EMP|SFM! It includes three full-size prop spaceships, props, costumes, and other memorabilia from the show! http://www.empsfm.org/exhibitions/index.asp?categoryID=164&ccID=286
- Seattle Shakespeare Company presents ‘Chamber Cymbeline’ at the Seattle Center House Theatre! This performance begins at 7:30pm and is a ‘pay-what-you-will’ preview performance. Chamber Cymbeline will be performed daily through January 30th. http://www.seattleshakespeare.org/2010-2011/Cymbeline/index.asp
- Come see ‘Harry Potter: The Exhibition’ at Pacific Science Center! It’s the last stop of the exhibit in the United States before it goes overseas. The exhibit will be in Seattle through January. Make sure you go online/call and purchase your tickets ahead of time – the exhibit has a timed-ticket entry, so you need to reserve a spot! The Seattle Monorail’s red train is currently wrapped to look like the Hogwarts Express in celebration of the exhibition. It’s a great way to get to and from Seattle Center from downtown Seattle! http://www.pacsci.org/harrypotter/
- Check out ‘Adventures with Clifford the Big Red Dog’ at the Seattle Children’s Museum. The Museum provides kids with a unique, interactive learning experience – it’s fun for the whole family! Clifford will be in town through January 17th! http://thechildrensmuseum.org/adventures-with-clifford-the-big-red-dog
