EMP Museum

On Saturday morning Dalan and I took our last opportunity for a babysitter before Braden and Fransheska left and visited the EMP (Experience Music Project) Museum. Neither of us had been before and we were very excited for 2 exhibits in particular: Icons of Science Fiction and The Art of Video Games.

We arrived as they opened on Saturday morning and pretty much had the place to ourselves for the first hour or so.

Lots of guitars

Entrance to the Icons of Science Fiction exhibit. We had a fun time trying identifying all of these.

It's a Dalek!! This one is made from wood, it is the Imperial Dalek used in a 1988 episode.

At the horror movie exhibit they had a shadow puppet screen that would add all kinds of weirdy hair and appendages.

We really had a fun time! We actually upgraded our day pass to a season pass so we can go again when we have visitors.
