One of our stops on our layover in Seattle included a trip to the acclaimed EMP Museum. The museum focuses on pop culture, featuring exhibits that showcase music, fantasy, horror, and sci-fi. An example? This room featured above is a tavern full of video games for you to play!

The sci-fi exhibit would definitely send any pop culture geek into a frenzy. At the time there was also a limited Star Trek exhibit that you could pay extra to get in to. Not my cup of tea, but probably a must for any trekkie!

I’m pretty fascinated with horror movies (older monster/zombie/murderer ones though, not the demon possession ones you see nowadays!), so the horror exhibit definitely excited me the most with fun facts and famous movie props. There were clips from horror movies throughout the years playing that I would have definitely checked out if I had more time to peruse.

Fantasy fanatic? The Fantasy: Worlds of Myth and Magic exhibit displayed props from movies including Harry Potter, Braveheart, The Princess Bride, and tons more. There were even notebooks showing original manuscripts and novel drafts from famous authors!

We lastly checked out the music exhibits, and this is where you could spend a huge chunk of time. With an array of instruments to play and sound booths to record in, it’s fun for the whole family. There was even a room where you could get on stage, sing and play instruments, and they would record you and have it seem like you were doing a show for an audience. I sincerely wish we had time to do this, it looked awesome!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Seattle’s EMP Museum and wish we had at least another couple of hours there. It’s a great place to spend half a day and extremely family friendly.
