Unfortunately, the weather of late has been a bit on the dismal side; read that grew wet and blowy, still nothing one would swap for the stuff they are getting back east and south east. Still if you haven't seen EMP it's worth a look and SAM is most always worth a walk thru. Pike Place Market can get awfully chilly if it's blowing and raining.
If you have time for a sandwich or more I suggest Dahlia Bakery, see link, their bread is something I strive to emulate. Here's a link:
This depends where you are staying and what kind of transportation you have, and what day of the week it is. There is the downtown tourist stuff: pike place market, pioneer square+underground tour, space needle+EMP+pacific science center. Farther afield is wine tasting (some at the market, more 20 miles away), the flight museum, natural history museum. Maybe an oven tour? i can think of 4-5 in the area.
I've never been but I would try to hit Veraci Pizza. They have been written up many times and started out as a portable wood fired oven at farmers markets and have now opened a place.
I have had friends go and have said it is very good.
