SCT is located in the lower Queen Anne neighborhood, on the grounds of the bustling Seattle Center, just steps away from the Space Needle. It's an exciting time in our area, with a plethora of new buildings in the works and thriving communities. Among some new developments is a massive renovation taking place at Key Arena. We are excited to see this major undertaking come to fruition for our city, but we recognize that this may affect our patrons. We invite you to consult our handy guide for a smooth, low-stress, and FUN visit to SCT!
Many bus routes stop in and around the Seattle Center Campus. You can find bus stops on Queen Anne Ave N, 1st Ave N, 2nd Ave N, 5th Ave N and Denny Way. Click below to find the route nearest you.
Not only is the Monorail an iconic piece of Seattle history, it provides a fun, quick (it's only a two-minute ride!) and convenient link from downtown Seattle's Westlake Center to the Seattle Center campus.
Parking is available at a number of nearby garages and surface lots. Limited street parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood. Parking availability may be restricted during sporting events, concerts, or other happenings at Seattle Center, so it's always a good idea to allow for extra time.
