Top 10 Museums For Geeks

In a way, all museums are for geeks – because geeks love history, science, and the pursuit of knowledge. But putting aside the mainstream museums we are all familiar with, there are some more specialized ones that are particularly tantalizing to those of the geek persuasion. This list looks at ten museums that every geek must try to visit at least once. I should warn you in advance, “museum” may be a little bit of a stretch for one or two of these places, but you will agree that they all deserve a place on this list.

Niagara Falls, New York, 14305, United States

The name may sound boring, but this isn’t just any museum of scientific interest. At the Niagara Science Museum, you can see a vast array of historic and antique scientific instruments but they are all to be found in perfectly reconstructed historically accurate laboratories. The museum covers science from the period of 1870 – 1930 so it is, in a way, showing science at the heyday of the industrial revolution. Among the many fascinating labs set up, the most interesting is the high-voltage lab. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, all of the instruments are fully functioning so you can see live demonstrations. [Image Source]
