Seattle (March 15, 2023) — Three fantastic Emerald City attractions have joined the Seattle C3® by CityPASS® attraction ticketing program. Seattle C3 tickets, which offer travelers discounted, bundled admission to their choice of three attractions, are designed for shorter-stay Seattle visitors who prefer a customized, tailor-made vacation experience. The list of attractions from which travelers may choose when crafting their personalized itineraries now includes the Space Needle, Chihuly Garden and Glass, and the Seattle Art Museum.
The Space Needle and Chihuly Garden and Glass, both located on the Seattle Center campus, have been part of the original Seattle CityPASS ticket for years. The Seattle Art Museum, however, is new to the CityPASS family of partner attractions. Two additional new attraction options—Sky View Observatory and The Museum of Flight—joined the Seattle C3 ticket when the program soft launched in late 2022.
Seattle C3 tickets allow users to save up to 31% when selecting any combination of three attractions from the following eight options:
- Space Needle
- Seattle Aquarium
- Argosy Cruises Harbor Tour
- Chihuly Garden and Glass
- Woodland Park Zoo
- The Museum of Flight
- Sky View Observatory
- Seattle Art Museum
Note: Attractions need not be selected at the time of ticket purchase and can be visited in any order.
One block from Pike Place Market and the city’s waterfront, the Seattle Art Museum (SAM) is the center for visual arts in the Pacific Northwest. SAM connects art to life through its global collections, powerful exhibitions and dynamic programs. Visitors journey through time and place with art from all genres, including modern and contemporary, African, Mesoamerican, ancient Mediterranean, Islamic, European, Oceanic, Australian Aboriginal, American and decorative arts.
To round out the experience, SAM Shop and SAM Gallery offer a stellar selection of art and design books, uncommon objects, and works from local artists. Visitors can refuel at SAM’s restaurant, MARKET Seattle, which features ocean-inspired fare like lobster rolls, fish and chips, and oysters. MARKET Seattle is where visual art meets remarkable culinary craft.
For a remarkable view of Seattle, Elliott Bay, the Cascade Mountains and more head to Sky View Observatory, located on the 73rd floor of the Columbia Center. From here, guests can map out their entire Pacific Northwest experience, from shopping at Pike Place Market to cruising on Elliott Bay to exploring the Seattle Center and the city’s expansive waterfront.
At 902 feet (275 meters), Sky View is the tallest public viewing area in the Pacific Northwest. With its panoramic views and an on-site café offering light fare, beer and wine, Sky View is a perfect spot for a sky-high snack or a sunset cocktail.
More sky-high adventure awaits at The Museum of Flight, the world’s largest independent aerospace museum. With five buildings on a 23-acre (9.3 hectares) campus, the museum covers the era of flight with more than 150 airplanes and spacecraft, including President John F. Kennedy’s Air Force One, a supersonic Concorde jet, Apollo Moon rockets, and a Lockheed Blackbird, the world’s fastest airplane and the Cold War’s ultimate spy plane.
The stunning Great Gallery fills a seven-story glass building with dozens of dramatically suspended aircraft. Among the highlights are Boeing’s first airliner and the only remains of aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart’s lost plane.
The museum’s largest artifact is the original Boeing Airplane Company factory, nicknamed the “Red Barn” and fully restored to tell the history of the enterprise whose flight innovations helped change the world. Next door is an entire building devoted to air combat during World Wars I and II.
The Charles Simonyi Space Gallery wraps around a Soyuz spacecraft and the only full-scale NASA space shuttle trainer, while the 3-acre (1.2 hectares) Aviation Pavilion has World War II bombers, classic airliners and the first 747 jumbo jet.
The Space Needle may have made its debut decades ago at the space age-themed 1962 World’s Fair, but Seattle’s most recognizable landmark has never looked better. The towering structure recently completed a $100 million remodel designed to elevate the guest experience by dramatically enhancing the view. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows on the 520-foot-high (158 meters) observation deck open an unobstructed 360-degree vista of Puget Sound, Mount Rainier and more. On the 500-foot (152 meters) level, a first-of-its-kind rotating glass floor, The Loupe, gives guests the feeling of floating and reveals never-seen-before downward views of the structure. Boasting 196% more glass, the Space Needle has created a thrilling, immersive adventure for all guests.
Next door to the Space Needle is Chihuly Garden and Glass, the only long-term exhibition dedicated to the work of world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly. The museum’s Exhibition Hall contains eight glass-art galleries offering visitors a comprehensive look at Chihuly’s significant series of work.
The centerpiece of the museum is the Glasshouse, which provides clear views of the Space Needle and the surrounding Garden (where visitors can catch daily glassblowing demonstrations). Measuring 100 feet (30 meters) in length and comprised of 1,340 individually crafted glass pieces, the Glasshouse’s colorful ceiling installation is one of Chihuly’s largest suspended sculptures.
Opened in 2023, The Bar at Chihuly Garden and Glass is the only place in the world to see more than 25 of Dale Chihuly’s personal collections. Enjoy a creative cocktail or small plate in a space whimsically decorated with the artist’s collections of old-time accordions, vintage radios, cameras from the 1940s and 1950s, and so much more. The focal point of The Bar is an illuminated installation of 36 signature Chihuly drawings, creating an art-centric dining experience.
