“Really cool stuff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

This place is very nostalgic. They have tons of cool stuff on Nirvana. There is a level of musical instruments you can play with and sound rooms where you can record your own music. Really awesome place to visit if you've never been.

“Awesome”

This is a great place and fun for all. Get there early to go into the sound lab. And spend some time in Skychurch - they show great NW bands

“So much to see! Don't rush it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Want to see the guitar Hendrex played at Woodstock? How about Captain Kirk's chair from Star Trek or Data's uniform? This is the place.... Or every video game from Pac Man to today and the controllers and consoles they were played with.
This is a great popular culture museum... One trip is not enough!
