I really enjoyed this visit as I work directly with Microsoft products but in all honesty this is not an attraction for everybody. The Visitor Center is kind of small and there is really not a whole lot to do unless you want to play some giants Xbox and games. Don't take me wrong, I still think the place is nice and an experience that you want to have if you are in the area.

Expect to be at the center around 30 to 45 minutes and about the same in the Company Store which is right across from it.

You'll have to register to enter the visitor center. The ladies at the registration desk were really nice and funny! The campus overall is impressive and expect to hear all kind of languages around you from people that works there.

Again, not an attraction for everybody but a must see if you are a MS fan like me!

There are no words I can use to describe how disappointed I am when I arrived this visitor centre. First it’s a small pathetic little place with probably 1000 sq ft size.. there are this board of microsoft founders, a few X boxes and some laptops. That’s it!
I actually found the gift shop more entertaining.
Such a waste of time.

I guess if you’re into x box and games you could make this last a couple hours. Had hoped there would be more history and information, especially since it took a long time to find a parking spot.

We expected that Microsoft would use the Visitor Center as part advert, but it turns out to be almost entirely an advert for Microsoft products.

There is very limited information on the history of the company, its products or how products are developed. Some neat technical displays but not a great deal to hold the attention.

And the Microsoft store opposite sold what could best be described as trinkets - and there was no opportunity to buy software products unless you were an employee. Very strange.

Overall a missed opportunity that could have been so much better. Certainly not worth an extended journey.

The Visitor Center is in Building 92, which means------ there are really over 90 buildings in one spot that house Microsoft employees and businesses. It was fun for my kids to see. I wish they had better signage as it was hard to find the building (maybe have an address for the building specifically we can put in our gps?).
