Photographer's Note

This is the entrance to the Science Fiction Museum with the Seattle Monorail tracks overhead. The building was designed by postmodern architecht Frank Gehry, who also designed the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, CA.

Here is some info on the SciFi Museum from Wikipedia:
The Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame is a science fiction museum, said to be the first such museum in the world, located inside the Experience Music Project building at Seattle, Washington's Seattle Center at the base of the Space Needle. It was founded by Paul Allen and Jody Patton and opened to the public on June 18, 2004. Members of the museum's board include Steven Spielberg, Ray Bradbury, James Cameron, George Lucas, and Arthur C. Clarke. Among its collection of artifacts are Captain Kirk's command chair from Star Trek and the B9 robot from Lost in Space. The X Prize trophy is currently on display in the museum's lobby.

The museum is divided into several galleries with a common theme such as "Homeworld", "Fantastic Voyages", "Brave New Worlds" and "Them!". Each gallery displays related memorabilia (movie props, first editions, costumes and models) in large display cases, posters, and interactive displays to sketch out the different subjects.
