“Worked here for a while...”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

A great place to work, from my experience. They take care of their employees and their workspace. Every building has a coffee stand, and most have someplace to eat.

“Ideal for geeks and kids”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

It´s the perfect destination for all the geeks worldwide. You can freely drive through the Campus and have a look where all that well-known software is thought, created, implemented, tested and localized. Unfortunately there are no signs about where is the Windows team or the Office team which could be very cool.

You can visit the Visitors Center for free where you can play games, touch the Surface and more. It´s located at the building 92 where also is located the Commons, a nice are for Microsofties to have lunch and relax. Of course, there is WiFi everywhere.

“Took High Schoolers on a Field Trip”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Took a group of HS students here for a field trip. Highly recommend for the middle school and even HS age. Lots of inter-active displays. Even the adults had a good time. But we only killed an hour there. Don't recommend planning your whole afternoon around this place.

“Underwhelmed”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Being a Microsoft person, this was like going back to the mothership. So my expectations were high!

The visitor's center is small, no tours, just a spattering of displays, a wall showing the history of electronics, and a few games you can play.

There's also a gift shop. Nice stuff, but pricey, and a display of the custom built tricycle motorcycle the Tuttles created.

“great experience”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

easy to find and free parking. go to building B92 were the visitor center is and you will amazed by the shop and the trial room where you can find all about the history of the company! Try surface, kinetic and many other staff! I am an apple fan but compared with the only gift shop I could see in Cupertino (which left me disappointed) this is 100 time better!
