  • If you're a geek of a certain age, you'll love this place. They have all kinds of old computer equipment--Altair, Radio Shack, Commodore, Apple, Atari, Kaypro, Tandy, Amiga--and not just as exhibits b...  more »
  • My teen and pre-teen boys really enjoyed this place. They liked especially the VR station. For us parents it was a trip down memory lane looking at the first generation PC's and floppy discs. Definite...  more »
  • On the main floor, there was plenty of hand-on exhibits to explore and it would have been possible to spend the entire time there. The opportunity to try on a virtual reality headset was a plus for th...  more »

  • This museum is my favorite attraction in Seattle by a long way. The ground floor is great for kids however the real treat is the top floor with every classic computer you can imagine on display. What's incredible is that all these computers are running and you can use them. Way more interesting than static displays. There's free parking and a great cafe 1 block towards Seattle.
  • Great place to totally nerd-out. Went with my colleagues on a work trip and it was a fun break. Tour was a little long, but super cool to see all the old computers.
  • This place is unique. Super interesting. History of computers and new stuff like robots, virtual reality and neural networks. I was there twice. Spent 2.5 hours during each visit and still wasn’t able to see everything. Will return again with my girlfriend :-)
  • Wonderful place with some great Staff. It's a fun little museum that you could easily squeeze in to any Seattle day trip as you can look and reminisce for just an hour or spend many more learning about the evolution of technology in our society. Always events happening and plenty of hands on activities for the young ones.
  • This is one of the best museums in the world, hands down. Even if you aren't a tech enthusiast, the story of how technology evolved through the 60's and beyond is incredible. The museum does a fantastic job telling the story of Microsoft v. Apple but also allows you to touch and operate all of the equipment you see. There are very few places in the world where you can use some of the equipment that changed the world in ways their creators could only have imagined.

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
