Discover the maritime community’s contemporary influence on our lives at Odyssey Maritime Discovery Center.  At the Center, you'll discover our commercial fishing, shipping, trade, transportation, recreation, and marine protection links to the Puget Sound and the North Pacific. Odyssey provides visitors a chance to explore the maritime world and learn about issues of special importance to the Northwest.

Try your hand at loading and piloting a container ship. Step into a replica modern naval bridge. Take a virtual kayak tour. Pedal a full-size propeller and learn the physics behind propulsion. Haul in fish aboard the kid skiff. No other attraction in the Northwest offers a comprehensive view of the regional economy and cultural and environmental treasures.

The Odyssey Maritime Discovery Center is located on Pier 66, the Bell Street Pier, on Seattle's central waterfront, between the Edgewater Inn and Anthony's Pier 66 restaurant.

Driving Directions:

From Interstate 5 or Interstate 90, take the Safeco Field exit. Turn right onto Fourth Avenue South, and right again onto Royal Brougham Street. Go several blocks and drive under the elevated highway (the Alaskan Way Viaduct). Turn right on to Alaskan Way, which is the surface street just beyond the viaduct. Drive north on Alaskan Way about 15 blocks until you see the second overhead pedestrian bridge. This is Pier 66, the Bell Street Pier, site of Odyssey.
