EMP Museum in Seattle, Part I: SciFi

There’s a museum that you don’t want to miss if you ever go to Seattle: The EMP Museum, which is all about music, science fiction and pop culture. I had no doubt I’d make the tour because they currently have an exhibition about Nirvana, but to our surprise, they  had a SciFi exhibition and a Video Games one, that were pretty entertaining too.

Another cool thing about this museum is the actual building, and specifically:

  • Its architect, Frank Gehry (also know by teh Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the Dancing House in Prague, or the MIT Ray and Maria Stata Center in Cambridge, amongst others)
  • The monorail, which goes through the museum.
  • I know I was lucky with the weather, but when the light gets reflected in the surface of the building it creates this beautiful effect on the stairs, in front of the same.

The SciFi Exhibition

Here’s a collection of items that can be found at the EMP Museum SciFi exhibition. I have to admit that I am not that much a science fiction fan, but I was able to recognize some of the following:

An authentic alien




A laser sable handle


An ax… that once belonged to Jack Nickolson




And some Star Treck stuff
