Seattle has a wealth of history and much of it is housed and displayed in the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI).
Our guest this week is Leonard Garfield, the Executive Director at MOHAI.
MOHAI has been in their current building at South Lake Union for over two years now and with more display room and a more central location, they have been experiencing an uptick in visitors.
Opening in July is a touring exhibit called Toys of the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. Leonard describes the unique way the exhibit will be displayed as well as what an exhibit like this can teach us about ourselves.
The Museum of History and Industry is open seven days a week with the first Thursday of each month having no entry fee.

We’re into what is called the 100 most deadly days on our roads! Angie Ward with the Washington Traffic Safety Commission is with us to provide really important reminders about driving safely on our roadways! Courtesy is something to keep at the forefront, remember the ‘zipper effect’ allowing people to merge from the right. Distraction is one of the biggest problems (30%, largely teen drivers with friends in the car!) and of course cell phones. Speed is also a big contributor. The goal is to be crash free during this summer time and save lives!
