Just got this from the Vanguard discussion list. Any other Seattle-area folks maybe interested in a field trip at some point?
The Museum of Snohomish County History will open "Yesterday's Tomorrows: Past Visions of the American Future" at 1 p.m. Saturday for an eight-week run. Created by the Smithsonian Institution, it sketches a world of robots, nuclear-powered cars and underground houses safe from atomic bombs.
Everett is the final stop on the Smithsonian's national tour, which began in 2001. The exhibit includes reproductions, photos and three-dimensional artifacts. A Microsoft flight-simulation program enables people to see what it feels like to fly with a jet pack.
When: opens Saturday and continues through Dec. 18. Hours will be 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays, with extended hours until 5 p.m. on Oct. 30 and Nov. 27 and until 7 p.m. on opening day, Oct. 26 and 29, Nov. 18 and 26, and Dec. 2 and 17.
Where: Museum of Snohomish County History, 1913 Hewitt Ave., Everett.
Admission: free; suggested donation is $2 for adults and teens, $1 for children.
