Seattle Live Computers: Museum + Labs recreates the 80s

A typical basement from the 1980s has been recreated at Living Computers: Museum + Labs in Seattle. The vintage technology on display includes a Nintendo entertainment system (in front of the TV), a color computer TRS-80 (on the desk) and an Etch a Sketch on the sofa

The world of an adolescent of the 80s was one of the recreational machines, LP and Nintendo consoles.

And now you can go back in time and enter that world thanks to a computer museum that has recreated it using a series of fascinating exhibitions.

They include an 80s classroom with state-of-the-art Apple IIe computers, a "basement of friends" that contains wood-paneled walls and a classic Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) console and a video game room.

Called & Totally 80s Rewind, the exhibition shows the meteoric rise of technology over the decade and can be found at Living Computers: Museum + Labs (LCM + L) in Seattle.

At the class exhibition, visitors can play the classic Oregon Trail educational computer game and watch the overhead projector to learn how to program in Basic.

In the recreated video game video game, visitors can claim chips to play games like Galaga, Centipede, Joust and Tempest.

And in the basement, guests can get wrapped up in nostalgia not just by playing the NES, but by retouching with a color TRS-80 computer on a workbench, challenging a friend to Battleship and releasing an LP on a turntable.

The exhibition of the 80s is just one of the many exhibits in the LCM + L, which says it offers a unique practical experience in the use of computer technology from the 1960s to the present.

The museum says it honors the history of computing with the world's largest collection of restored and usable supercomputers, mainframes, minicomputers and microcomputers.
