Be prepared for a nostalgic blast from the past and a peek at the future at the Living Computer Museum. This tech-history hub covers not only the beginning of computers but also where technology will be taking us. From the retro 80s’ enormous computers and arcade games to building your own robots and learning how to use a 3D printer, the museum provides a unique look at the significance of technology in our lives.

In addition to their already existing exhibits, the museum hosts frequent workshops, such as Lego Robotics and building your own Smart Hub. You are able to explore technology for yourself and discover how it works up close, perfect for both tech geeks and the tech challenged. Besides workshops, the museum also hosts themed weekends such as a Windows 95 Weekend where exhibits take you down memory lane to that early software.

If you’re able to attend on the first Thursday of the month, go between 5:00 and 8:00 p.m. for free admission. The museum is located in Seattle’s SoDo district near T-Mobile Park. For more information about the museum, go to livingcomputers.org.
