Alaska Theatre of Sensations

Welcome to the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition!

Washington's first World's Fair was held on the campus of the University of Washington more than a century ago putting Seattle on the map as a gateway to the Pacific Rim. Nearly 4 million people attended.

You can go back in time to stroll down the Pay Streak, hop on a carnival ride, purchase a souvenir or refreshment, or take in an "educational" exhibit like the Igorrote village or the baby incubator.
