Ever since we went to a short visit to Seattle for a first time, I wanted to go to EMP. Not so much because I am so interested in music and pop culture – this time it was Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana tribute – but because of museum’s SF and Fantasy Hall of Fame. My readers know that SF in all its forms – books, movies, photographs, etc – is my favourite kind o art. And when I read that they have one of the objects from the best movie of all times – Bladerunner – my decision to visit it, was definite.
SF & Fantasy Hall of Fame contain some familiar faces:
or this guy
Xenomorph from first of Alien movies
They were among my favourites but you can see some… “relics”… from the old times, when SF was still in cradle, just showing its future potential:
Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz
Also, I could now completely understand why Dart Vader needed to turn himself into music world: after he sold his light sabre, means of life became scarce. And man’s got to do, what man’s got to do to provide the daily bread to his family 😛
They have a part dedicated to horror movies, too. Not that I am that much into horrors, but there was a showpiece from Blair Witch Project, a movie with a little blood and gore but a lot of fear.

I was hoping there would be more pieces from Bladerunner but it seems they have only one. Oh, well. This one was interesting enough 😀

Anyway, the museum itself is located near the Space Needle (how convenient 😀 ) and it looks unreal and very futuristic. Btw, if you followed some of the links I provided here, you can see the rest of the photographs from museum.
