Seattle Center Pavilion History
Built for the 1962 World’s Fair, this building housed the display on Great Britain and was surrounded by the “International Plaza.” In 1965 the Seattle Art Museum located at Volunteer Park, used the space for large, traveling exhibits. The most famous of these exhibits was the King Tut exhibit in 1978, which has been credited as replenishing the treasury of the Seattle Art Museum. The Seattle Art Museum has since moved into a new beautiful museum located in downtown Seattle. The Seattle Center Pavilion is currently used primarily for community festivals and long-term exhibits.
No smoking allowed in the building.
Parking is available in all Seattle Center lots.
