Every stoner knows that any trip to a museum is incomplete without a smoke sesh right before. Weed makes everything better—colors become more vibrant, the mind is more creative, and the entire world seems alright with wonder and possibility.
Going to a museum is one of the best things to do when high, especially in a city chock-full of great options for tourists or locals. Here are a few of our favorite museums in Seattle for you to saunter on down to the next time you blaze one with some friends.
The Museum of Flight, just south of Seattle, houses a wide variety of early aircraft in a massive gallery that will throw your vision for a loop as you wander around underneath some of mankind’s greatest constructions.
If you’re someone interested in engineering or technology, the Museum of Flight will excite your mind as titanic examples from the history of aviation hang overhead as though they were never decommissioned.
The curious stoner will definitely appreciate examining these great beasts of modernity in the light of a healthy high. Don’t get too stoned, though—having a bad trip here could be scary!

The Olympic Sculpture Park is attached to the museum, and you’ll definitely want to stop by this exquisite open-air sculpture gallery which is home to a few titans of sculpture including structures by Richard Serra and Alexander Calder.

Located just steps away from the legendary Seattle Space Needle, the Museum of Pop Culture (also known as MoPOP) was founded in 2000 by the co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Allen.
Upon your first arrival, MoPOP makes its mark in the mind, as the Frank Gehry-designed building resembles three gigantic, abstract, overflowing paint buckets lined up in a row—a visual treat that will excite any influenced state of consciousness.
Once inside, the museum takes you through a tour of contemporary pop culture, featuring exhibits on horror movies, music, and even video games, making for an experience of pure fun that demands hours of careful exploration.
