    Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame

    Before entering the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame, I wondered just how would one go about setting up a museum about something seeming intangible as science fiction. I soon found out.

    The museum has displays covering the timeline of science fiction, from its earliest contributors to the present day. Its hall of fame display includes many famous authors and other notables of science fiction. There was even a display of science fiction books that resembled a lost corner inside an old library rather than a museum.

    The most interesting exhibits were artifacts from many movies and television shows. This included props, costumes, and scenery. The television series Star trek was well represented with authentic props like phasers and communicators. Weaponry from various movies was also on display at the armory. Star Wars took a place of prominence among the props. Displays about characters were also present.

    The museum diverged into a robot display. This was an enormous collection of toy robots. Perhaps you might find something you remember from your childhood among the exhibits.

    A nice collection of movie posters was available for viewing.

    Entry to the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame is included with the Experience Music Project.

    Totally Cool! I went to the EMP with my musician boyfriend and, although I love music too, I didn't want to stay there while he played around with some of the exhibits. There is a Science Fiction Museum in the same building that is small enough to get through in an hour or less and , although I don't like Sci-Fi stuff now, I just loved the place. There were costumes and memorablia from the earliest Sci-Fi books and movies (Think "Flash Gordon") through to modern TV Shows, and everything in between. It was very nostalgic walking around there. Do not miss if you have any interest in Sci-Fi or Movies.

    Sci-Fi Museum - Unique in this Galaxy

    There is no place like this place. Of course, that means it's not for everyone. However, as a sci-fi fan myself, I had to become a charter member when this museum opened in 2003.

    The exhibits cover literature, philosophy, television, and movies. It's fun to see Captain Kirk's chair from the original Star Trek show, as well as read about the philosophy behind armageddon epics like the Philip Dick short story "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"

    This museum is best explored as a part of a combined ticket with the Experience Music Project. LIke EMP, the entrance fee is expensive (about $13) so is best suited for those who are truly interested in the genre.
