Pinball museum, comic stores, code classes, oh my!

Pinball museum

In a city peppered with hi-tech, biotech, aerospace and gaming companies combined with a climate mostly conducive to hunkering down indoors, it’s no wonder “geekery” thrives in Seattle, including plenty of opportunities to have a blast with your young nerd-in-training. In honor of GeekGirlCon, held on Oct. 10 and 11 this year at the Washington State Convention Center, here are ten of our favorite geek activities

Seattle Pinball Museum

If your kids don’t know what came before video games, it’s time to go on a field trip. Nestled among the Asian restaurants of the International District is the one-and-only Seattle Pinball Museum. Featuring 53 pinball machines from the 1960s to now, this hands-on museum is “dedicated to the preservation of pinball for future generations.” Pay a daily entrance fee and play unlimited pinball games.
