As a 13 year old, I always get bored. My dad decided to take me to Microsoft visitor center. They have games that you can play for free. (The VR demo is a must do!)

The visitor center was recently renovated and looks a lot better than it did before. If you're interested in tech and more specifically would like to learn about Microsoft's history I would highly recommend the visitor center. Don't plan for more than an hour, unless...More

I visited a friend who works at Microsoft, and we got to see the food court and campus of the employees. The visitor's center was also very educational and interesting. And of course, you have to get a photo next to the microsoft sign.

Innovative, interactive, and educational, the Microsoft Visitors Center was an interesting stop. Testing the Hololens (a pair of 'glasses' demonstrating holographic image selection and movement) was tremendous fun. Many new games and interactive exhibits were available for all to try. A number of artificial intelligence...More

For a large campus apparently they really are not interested in having guests. There is no tours and you walk into a large room that has some computers you can play on. You can go into their store but not many things to purchase.

The tour is free. Visitor parking is free as well. The tour is not too long maximum 1.5-2 hours. Have some time reserved to walk around the Microsoft Commons campus.
