Science Fiction Museum: A Place For Our Stuff

Thanks to a billionaire, there will be a science fiction museum that you can walk into and look around. But there'll be guards and cameras in case you want to make off with something and huckster it on eBay, you greedy bastards.

The exhibit is set to open in summer 2004 in Seattle, in the same building as the Experience Music Project. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen is funding the whole thing. See? Microsoft is good for something.

The Experience Music Project is unofficially called "the rock museum," which means that music geeks and sci-fi geeks will have some place in common besides high school.

Sci-fi props on display will include autographed first editions of Isaac Asimov's "Foundation" series, and Captain Kirk's command chair.

Author Greg Bear will chair an advisory board to the museum, (among the two dozen SF notables on the board are Ray Bradbury, Ray Harryhausen, Arthur C. Clarke, Kim Stanley Robinson, Forry Ackerman, and Octavia Butler.

Sounds pretty nice. It'll be like a convention, except they won't allow LARPing in the hallways.


RevolutionSF news editor Joe Crowe will someday be in the sci-fi museum. Sweeping it.
