SCIENCE FICTION MUSEUM AND HALL OF FAME MUSEUM
Gort from the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still
Science fiction exhibits were added to the EMP in 2004 to enhance the EMP museum's appeal and to build up attendance. The bulk of the science fiction holdings came from Paul Allen's extensive science fiction collection.

This museum is a visual and auditory sensation. Plan on spending at least a couple of hours to see and do everything in the museum. If you have several children, you probably will need to spend more than a couple of hours.
The building itself is an amazing architectural attraction. At the very least, take a walk around the perimeter of the building to enjoy its dramatic curves.
A visit inside the museums is dramatic just surveying the curves in the interior walls. The interior is a reflection of the wild curves on the exterior.
The EMP museum will certainly entertain anyone that likes Jimi Hendrix and rock music history. The interactive music exhibits are a lot of fun to play with.
For the science fiction fan, the Battlestar Gallactica exhibition, the Avatar exhibtion, and the museum store offer visual treats.
In conclusion, this is an enjoyable place to visit and offers a lot for the visitor.
