SEATTLE – Sixty years ago Seattle’s Museum of History and industry opened its doors for the first time.  On Saturday MOHAI opened them again in a new location along Seattle’s South Lake Union.

It took ten years to transform the Naval Reserve Armory.  Visitors can now enjoy 50,000 square feet of Seattle’s history which includes millions of northwest artifacts.

A special exhibit at the museum called ‘Celluloid Seattle’ is all about the history of Seattle as told through films such as ‘Tugboat Annie’ and ‘Sleepless in Seattle’.

Tickets for the public grand opening are still available for Sunday.
