  • The remodeled and expanded Living Computer Museum is worth finding you way to visit. All of the computers work, and for those of us who have been around awhile, it is fun to see our "first personal co...  more »
  • This place isn't for everyone. Let's just get that out there to start with. If you don't like computers and the history of computers, you should probably find a nice coffee house or bar and skip this ...  more »

  • Worth of visit! They have some off street parking but some of it is taken by construction (they're remodeling the 1st floor). Check the tour times because it's much more interesting with narration. Also, you can play many old computer games.
  • The best geek museum in Seattle. Loved going from working machine to working machine as my husband exclaimed over each, hoping to catch a glimpse of a working Altair.... And we did! Plus we got to play frogger on an actual Atari. Seriously.
  • Definitely the hilight of our trip! It's a dream to be able to actually type on a computer from the 60s and learn about all the history around it. This place rivals the Computer History Museum in Palo Alto because of all the interactivity. Will be back again!
  • Feeling like a kid while playing games I grew up playing. Seeing the massive super computers we used to learn and grow into what we use everyday. Experiencing the history leading us to what we use in our daily lives. The museum is inspiration, simply awe inspiring. The talent and determination represented in this growing spot is fun and useful. We know where to go because of where we have been. The staff are super friendly and willing to help with education of what you are seeing. Learning things that I did not even know. This is a must do. Hope you have fun on your experience.
  • This place is a fascinating journey through the history of computers. Brush up on your knowledge of BASIC, Linux+GNU interfaces, and early windows as you explore the history of computing. Still under construction, the displays they have now are absolutely worth a visit, and with student ID it is a mere $4 for general admission (see everything at your own pace).
