Georgetown Steam Plant


Urban Adventure - Georgetown Steam Plant

Photograph Steam Plant (inside)

  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)

Meet at the entrance at 10:00 a.m.

Dress warmly - it often feels colder inside the plant than outside!

A few rules:

  • Tripods are permitted, though we ask for you to be courteous of other visitors in the plant. Tripods are not allowed on the second-floor catwalk. Steam plant staff have the discretion to ask you to move a tripod if it appears to be a hazard or is impeding the experience of other visitors.
  • Flash is permitted inside the building.
  • A safe distance must be maintained from all machinery, equipment, and other steam plant paraphernalia.
  • External gear, such as reflectors, softboxes, and other studio equipment, is not permitted inside the plant during the Open House. Photographers may bring in a maximum of one tripod each.
  • Props, including weapons of any kind, are not permitted at the Open House.

There is limited parking available on-site. Carpools and public transportation are encouraged. If on-site parking is full, visitors may be requested to find parking off-site, including local neighborhood streets. Seattle City Light assumes no responsibility for personal vehicles parked on- or off-site.
