When we had been for a walk the previous night we'd seen a small park near Pioneer Square that was all locked up for the evening and we were curious to see what was in there. Turns out its an inner city waterfall! When we were in Seattle it was a million degrees, so its was a nice spot to visit and I can it would be a good place to hang out in the summer.
After the Sky Needle our next stop was the EMP museum, we had friends that had visited this building before and I was pretty excited to check it out finally. In case you've never heard of it before, the EMP Museum is a museum of science fiction, music and pop culture. When we bought the tickets for the museum we were told that it would take around two hours to look around, which wasn't true, I could have spent days at this museum.
The first exhibition we went to was Can't Look Away - The Lure of Horror Film , I had no idea this exhibition was here and I was so excited to find out it was on! I think I said to Rich something along the lines of "Did they know I was coming and put this one especially for me?".
Star Wars costume exhibit - although I'm not a huge Star Wars fan, I grew up watching the movies and learning all of the inspiration for the costumes was fascinating.
Indie Game Revolution was full of cool games you could try out.
Chuck Jones exhibit. I thought it would be an AMAZING thing to see as I grew up watching all the old Warner Brothers cartoons and always had a soft spot for Pepe La Pew and Daffy Duck. Guess where that exhibit was happening? It may not have been the biggest exhibit, but it was SO interesting and there were plenty of photo ops (I'm mostly in it for the photo ops).
The Sound Lab - I struggle through music at school playing drums and later on flute, but as much as I enjoy music I'm NOT a musician at ALL. Rich however was in his element, you have the opportunity to play all kinds off instruments with tutition (from a computer scree, but its still a fun thing to do!).
Nirvana exhibition and the Guitar Gallery but I didn't take photo of those as they were the last two exhibits we saw and I'd reached information overload by that stage and we didn't even see EVERYTHING!
We left around 7pm when it was closing time, but like I said before I could have stayed for days at this place. I hope sometime we will head back to Seattle and have another chance to visit this place. If you're going to or even thinking of going to Seattle you must check out this museum - its one of the most fun and interesting places I've ever been.
Also guess what? There's still ONE more post about Seattle to come - I kind of loved this place, can you tell?
