If I lived in Seattle, I would definitely become a member of this museum. Hell, I'd probably even volunteer there. Hm, looking for job openings...
- Can't Look Away: The Lure of Horror Film
- Scream Booth
- Philip Worthington's interactive shadow monster installation. Monster parts grew and changed with our movements.
Me on the right
- Old movie posters
- Movie and TV props
- Commentaries on Michael Jackson's Thriller and Evil Dead 2 (one of my fave scary movies). Learned that Evil Dead 2 was one of the most successful horror sequels, which I found amusing because it's pretty much a remake of the first Evil Dead (commentary even admitted this right when I was thinking it!)
- Icons of Science Fiction
- Putting on costumes to pose in the compositing special effects installation
- So, this is how much of a nerd I am. The Dalek (major recurring enemies in Doctor Who) was the first thing I rushed over to see. I got super excited about it, and naturally no one knew what I was talking about. Looked much less threatening in person.

- Command Chair from Star Trek: The Original Series
- Neo's coat from The Matrix. Didn't realize how tall Keanu Reeves is. He's like a foot taller than I am!
- Rifle from Men in Black
- Superman suit. So much spandex...
- Concept sketches of Darth Vader's helmet
- Displays of science fiction books that actually got me curious to read them. Putting The Forever War on my To Read List.
- Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses
- An abundance of information on Nirvana and the Washington music scene.
- Personal photos, handwritten lyrics and letters, demo tapes, album covers gave insight into Nirvana. There were remnants of a guitar smashed by Kurt Cobain that were reunited for the first time in years that gave me chills.
- Had no idea Death Cab for Cutie was from Bellingham, WA. We were there the day before!
- The listening stations allowed me to check out bands I had always heard about. And even though I'm behind the times, I think I could get into The Posies and The Young Fresh Fellows.
- Guitar Gallery: The Quest for Volume
- Is a must for anyone who plays or loves guitars
- Jimi Hendrix: An Evolution of Sound
- Had no idea he used to play with Little Richard
- The Rolling Stones
- Because of my age, I've only ever known them as old, wrinkly rockers. It's hard to remember they were actually young and attractive once.
Keith Richards before he was an old pirate
- Sound Lab
- Where I listened to Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) over and over again and learned how to mix
