Living Computers: Museum + Labs

Pioneer Square, International District & SoDo

Founded by Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen (1953–2018), this place will evoke heavy nostalgia in anyone who can remember the world pre-internet. Hosted in a nondescript commercial building in industrial SoDo and little known even among locals, it’s well worth checking out for its host of antediluvian computers with their blinking green cursors and black, app-free screens. Some of them are large enough to fill an average-sized student bedroom.

Friendly guides give regular tours and you’re welcome to ‘play’ on many of the exhibits.
