The Bezos Center for Innovation at Seattle’s Museum of History and Industry features 5,000 square feet of exhibits which tell a story of science, design, and technology through a sense of place. Exhibits include an 360-degree immersive timeline of Northwest innovation and a 9-feet-high graphic novel depicting stories of Seattle’s global pioneers, including Boeing, Starbucks, and Amazon. Throughout, the exhibition invites visitor to contribute their own opinions, ideas and personal stories, asking: “Who inspires you?” and “What problems need solving now?” These ongoing contributions and a rotating “What’s Next?” exhibit reminds visitors that the best ideas are still to come.

“The multitude of approaches designed to tell the story [of innovation] are themselves seamless with the content. It is a brilliant and engaging execution.” – Paul Roelofs, juror, Core77 Awards
