    Went here two hours before closing time, which was enough to see the exhibitions that you wanted to see. Very interesting place, with many things to see. Good for all ages!

    This is a must if visiting Seattle. Two main areas- music and science fiction. The SF area has some great items from films and you can spend ages in the music experience playing instruments

    This place is wicked awesome and offers a great military discount! From the Sky Church to each of the exhibits, if you're a fan of music, sci-fi, & pop culture you're in for a treat! A must see!

    Nice place, with a peculiar variety of exhibits; sci fi, horror, rock music, pop music, video games. They have discounted tickets if you order online.

    Super cool museum, I loved the fantasy exhibit! Well worth a visit even if you're only in town for a few days. They offer student tickets and combo tickets with the space needle.

    Hard to miss the giant tower of guitars. Lots of things to do and see if you're into video games, fantasy stories and guitars and music, esp Hendrix and Nirvana

    The museum is small enough to see every exhibit that interests you and big enough to get your money's worth. Get your tickets online, and plan some time to hang out at the Sky Church...

    This place is awesome, specially the part where you can play with all kinds of musical instruments. I am a fan of Nirvana, and as so, I really enjoyed the exhibition.

    What a blast we had here. A full immersion on the history of music. Plus, you can have your own moment of "fame" playing instruments, singing etc, in the lab sound. Perfect place for all the family!

    If you are a movie junkie, stick to the first floor for Horror, Sci-fi and Fantasy film memorabilia. The second floor has a wing dedicated to musical influencers and an electronic room for gamers.

    Museum for geeks (in a very good way). Science fiction, horror, video games, fantasy (Apr 2013), and rock music. What more could you ask for in a museum?! A must.

    Just love this place, probably the best place to be in Seattle! Spend four hours in two days and really enjoy its music lab, learned some tricks, singing skills and instruments. LOVE THIS, MUST BE!

    The music focused stuff is great, but there's a lot more here. The film and culture focused exhibits are also excellent, just wish it stayed open later.

    Building architecture from the outside is stunning but once you are in there is not that much to see. The horror movie and fantasy land exhibition are the best.

    Dedicated to contemporary pop culture, music, and science fiction, exhibits here are largely interactive — the Sound Lab allows visitors to explore the latest in musical gear and audio technology.

    Fun, interactive museum and features the history of rock 'n' roll. Shares building space with the Science Fiction Museum - you buy one ticket and you gain admission to both museums!

    Visit the western side of the museum, outside, at sunset. The light reflecting off the outer walls if the building creates beautiful patterns on the ground and surrounding area.

    Been here 5+ times
    Don't forget to check out the visiting exhibitions (esp. the scream booth and the projector in the Horror one). The new Lego exhibition is pretty cool too!

    EMP is a fantastic interactive museum invented by Paul Allen. The Sky Church (EMP's concert hall) boasts state-of-the-art sound & lighting along with one of the best digital screens I have ever seen.

    Amazing museum! Very interactive and informative, the museum keeps punk alive and "take it to the masses". A must-see in Seattle!

    Admire some of the most beautiful and iconic guitars at Experience Music, and a fantastic multi-story sculpture made from guitars! And see the fantastic "spaceship" floor of the Sci-Fi Museum too. :D

    I went here for the Halo Reach Launch! What an incredible venue! Definitely a great place to bring music lovers/out of town family or friends. I'm excited to go through the normal exhibits.

    This place has really changed since it was the Jimi Hendrix Experience. The admission is pretty pricey even with the student discount as well.
