Kind of. I thought the food was pretty lame and I had no interest in the Music part.

I was impressed with some very obscure Sci-Fi books/movies they showcased, e.g. "The Quiet Earth"

(where the heck was the dance floor? A setting like that with free booze just begged to have an actuarial dance party)

The Sci-Fi museum was kind of interesting, although I'm not into any of the Stars (Wars or Trek). The rest was passable. I went back early.

I had no particular affinity for the science fiction piece, but it did seem good for what it was. The music part was generally pretty lame, except for the interactive stuff upstairs which was pretty cool. All in all, I was disappointed.

As a museum, I agree. But I thought the Sci Fi/Music experience museum was a fine place for supper. And I enjoyed the interactive stuff upstairs in the music area.

I don't get why it was called a "moveable feast".

Yeah, the EMP part was kind of lame, but I did enjoy the Sci-Fi museum a lot, too. I think I read every single word written in the exhibits, and I looked at the robots quite a bit. I saw a few that I owned when I was a kid.

I also walked outside and walked around the base of the Space Needle and the rest of the Seattle Center a bit. I bet it's a pretty cool place in the daytime.
