Back from Seattle

The pictures from our trip to seattle is at http://picasaweb.google.com/matt.warren/TripToSeattle

Unfortunately we were not allowed to take pictures inside the music and science fiction museums. The Experience Music Project was a really cool walk through the history of music recording. They had a lot of stuff about the evolution of the electric guitar, an in depth section on Jimi Hendrix and a section of sound rooms to try recording various instruments.

The Science Fiction Museum was cool, they had a massive collection of various movie pieces. They had things like phasers used in the filming of various Star Trek movies, Costumes for aliens in many different movies. They had a section on robots including the animatronic t-rex used in Jurrasic Park. It was a pretty impressive collection many of which are from Steve Allen’s private collection.

Overall I was pretty impressed with Seattle. It is a city with a lot to offer. I’ll probably be back sometime in the future. Although the next time I head down across the border will probably be to check out the outlet stores for some killer deals.
