What’s an e-commerce tycoon to do after funding everything from nuclear fusion startups to commercial spaceflight ventures? Why, help develop a museum exhibit to inspire young folks and teach them about innovation, of course.
After more than two years of development and $10 million from Jeff Bezos’ own pockets, the Museum of History and Industry will open the doors to the Bezos Center for Innovation on October 12th. Not only does the center aim to help visitors learn about “the importance of innovation” through interactive exhibits, but it will toot Seattle’s horn for being “the birthplace of so many trailblazing companies.”
If you can’t make it to The Emerald City, we’re sure Bezos has a few learning alternatives in mind.
