Unity Museum.

Unity Museum

Part museum, part memorial to the owner's husband, part educational institution, part meditation space, the Unity Museum on the second floor of a building in Seattle's University District is an engaging place to spend an afternoon. Besides books and photos, it features an electric train that leads visitors on a journey through the evolution of human society since 1800.

[Marcia, 06/26/2021]

The evolution train, which offers audio stations with headphones, winds past many displays, including a souvenir plate of Princess Di and a photo of the Supreme Court.
