THE LEGENDS OF SMITH TOWER

AN OBSERVATORY EXPERIENCE

The Legends of Smith Tower exhibits are being refreshed and are temporarily unavailable. Please watch for their re-opening in May 2017. The Observatory and bar remain open and accessible with Straight Up tickets.

On your way to the top of the tower, explore some of the stories, figures and moments that have made Smith Tower a beloved Seattle gem. Your ticket includes:

  • Access to The Legends of Smith Tower exhibits begins "behind the curtain" and continues through the second and Observatory levels. The exhibits take you on a journey through time, providing a glimpse into a time when Seattleites were coming to terms with early Prohibition and technology that would soon transform their city.
  • The experience culminates in the Observatory, now featuring a speakeasy-inspired bar with an intriguing and fun menu ¬†featuring local favorites and craft cocktails with a pinch of Prohibition that pays homage to Smith Tower's rum-running roots and Chinese Room history.

STRAIGHT UP
