It's cool, but the shop isn't that great

I was pretty underwhelmed by the microsoft store at the visitor's center. It seems like all the merchandise is either super cheap crap or overly expensive video games. They have... read more

Get technology updated, educate your children on an interactive funny way. Lots of section to learn, it will take you 3-4 hour to appreciate the center.

Great place to get the download on Microsoftstore history from the early days to the massive company they are now. Great opportunity to get hands-on experience with their software and hardware. Cool place!

Was really looking forward to visiting and letting my kids get hands on. It wasn't busy when we were there, but we still had to wait for a few exhibits. Biggest problem for me was that many of the innovations simply weren't working. Added to that was the difficult we found in playing XBox games - there was so much... More

Great for seeing all the history and work done by Microsoft to reach the state we are in today. You can see things from the first OS to the latest Hololense work

My partner is a huge Microsoft fan so we went there for him. This was the number one thing he wanted to in Washington, however, it turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. You just walk around and look at their latest products. We enjoyed the things that worked like the makeup and clothes app, and the art... More

Had a spin through the Visitors centre and found a great showcase of new products. There is also a bit of history of Microsoft.

I was pretty underwhelmed by the microsoft store at the visitor's center. It seems like all the merchandise is either super cheap crap or overly expensive video games. They have this little area where you can play with some computers and experience some of the 'cool' stuff microsoft has, but it wasn't that exciting. Honestly, the best thing about the... More

There is a small tech display area with brief history (pictures of founders). Some samples of Microsoft products and thats it. Drove 1 hour for basically nothing. Parking is hard to find in the mornings. A company as huge as Microsoft could and should do much better! The gift shop has some nice souvenirs but thats about it.
