Best Geeky Museum: Living Computer Museum

Located in SoDo, the Living Computer Museum is the quintessential geek museum. Started by Paul Allen, it’s filled with machines and software from several different time periods. Brilliantly, the museum allows patrons to interact with “living” computers. Since it is hard to tell how computers and software have changed just by looking at them, only by interacting can one truly appreciate how the technology has changed so rapidly over the past 30 years. In addition to telling the computer’s story, the museum highlights an essential part of Seattle binary history—the founding of Microsoft and its role in establishing Seattle as a tech-driven city. For anyone interested in how Allen, Gates, and Seattle took the world from DOS to XP, the Living Computer Museum is a must-see.
