    The Seattle CityPASS includes admission to 5 of Seattle’s most famous attractions, including Seattle’s world-famous symbol, the Space Needle.

    Unlike a few other reviews on here I really enjoyed MoPop. Fantasy, horror, and Disney sections were great. Interesting to see items from our favorite shows over the years.

But nice location on the aquarium near Pikes Place city market. Overall a good time and visit to Seattle with our 12 year old daughter.
