There are few places in the Seattle area where you can see dinosaur bones and have a prehistoric adventure. The Burke Museum on the University of Washington campus is just such a place. Membership is cheap though the exhibits do not rotate enough to make long term membership productive for the entire family. Their history of the region exhibit covers dinosaurs to more modern wildlife. The triceratops skull and saber tooth cat exhibit are memorable. For families with an ethnic blend of the Pacific rim, the downstairs cultural exhibits can be a good way to educate the kids about their heritage.
