I'm putting together a list of geeky places to go around Albuquerque and New Mexico. I'm thinking of places like the Telephone Museum, Tinkertown, and the space monkey grave in Alamogordo. What offbeat and geeky places do you folks know about?

The building on Linn NE where Bill Gates and Steve Allen started Microsoft.

That's a good one. I know there's a plaque there that talks about it.

Steve Allen, really.  The one from Common Cause or The Tonight Show?

Paul Allen. Pardon me.

I was just kidding, really.  The point to be made is that is the kind of investment we need in our community that really pays off long term.  Not call centers or promoters who claim they can produce solar panels cheaper than China.  Of course, it's worth noting that Paul Allen was an investor in Eclipse Aviation so you can't win them all. 

Space chimp. Please.

I would also add the Nuke Museum and the Biology, Anthropology, and Geology Museums on the UNM campus (very small, very science-y),  Los Alamos is full of geeky sights, not all of them nuke-related...

True, I just keep thinking of the John Prine song.


The Black Hole, Los Alamos. Nuclear industry thrift store.

There is this site...   Roadsideamerica.com





Love all the kitchy UFO stuff in Roswell. Such a hoot!

Also, the adult nights at Explora. Great fun to go act like a kid, and still (re)learn some science. The Tornado Alley IMAX movie playing now at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. The ghost tours in Old Town. The Albuquerque Trolley tour for locals. I guess I could go on and on!

Explora is a great pick. The trolley too.

How about First Friday Fractals at the NM Museum of Natural History Planetarium?
