Housed in an enormous building designed by Frank Gehry, it lies at the foot of the Space Needle, which is reflected on its warped sheet metal facade. It features a Sky Church concert venue with one of the largest indoor LED screens in the world. There are interactive spaces such as Sound Lab where visitors can jam together on various musical instruments and multimedia installations in sound-proof rooms. It celebrates Seattle musicians Nirvana and Jimi Hendrix, showcasing the largest collections in the world of rare artifacts, hand-written lyrics, personal instruments, and original photographs belonging to the artistes.

The Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame is dedicated to authors such as Douglas Adams and Isaac Asimov who paved the way for new discoveries.
