Seattle Center

The site of 1962’s Century 21 Exposition, tagged “America’s Space Age World’s Fair,” Seattle Center has survived decades of massive growth all around it. The main attraction is still the Space Needle, revealing the futuristic vision of 1960’s Seattle. Today, a close second is the ultra-modern and controversial Experience Music Project, Paul Allen’s monument to rock music. For the city’s residents, the Center is synonymous with lavish presentations of art, theater, dance, and music all year long.
