You can also go inside a life-sized, pin-hole camera, enjoy live music and performers, scale the rock climbing wall, have your face painted, play in huge sandboxes, blow giant bubbles, silkscreen a T-shirt, enjoy discounted museum admission of $5.50 per person, and so much more.

Activities are featured at East Bay Plaza, the street around the museum and the LOTT Wet Center. Park your car for free on the Port Peninsula and take free shuttles from the NorthPoint Parking Lot.

Stop by the Port booth on East Bay Plaza and play with the giant foam building blocks. The Port is proud to be an ongoing partner with Sand in the City, now the largest sand sculpting event in Washington State and the second largest community event in the South Sound. More than 35,000 visitors are expected.
