Seattle Mechanical Keyboard Meetup

January 25th, 2020 • Living Computer Museums + Labs

Get ready for the 8th semi-annual #smkmeetup

Join us for a casual day in a keyboard petting zoo. There will be hundreds of keyboards to type on and talk about. Come for the keyboards; stay for the community.

We will also have keyboard soldering workshops! More details coming soon (if you RSVP, we will email you once workshop registration is available).

Bring your own mechanical keyboard(s) and receive free admission to the Living Computers Museum + Labs. The museum generously provides the space for everyone to meetup, share, and socialize over keyboards. In exchange, we provide the museum with a quasi-pop-up keyboard exhibit. If you don't have a keyboard to show off in the petting zoo, you will need to pay admission once you arrive at the museum (the museum is totally worth it).

Museum/Meetup Admission
With Keyboard & RSVP RSVP Required
Without Keyboard* $22.00

* If you RSVP and bring a keyboard, the museum will admit you for free because you are an "exhibitor" of keyboards at the museum for the day. This event is public, so anyone can attend without an RSVP. But without an RSVP and keyboard, museum entry fee or museum membership will be required.


The Living Computer Museum has limited parking available in their parking lot. Street parking should be free. There are plenty of paid parking options as well.
