For a large campus apparently they really are not interested in having guests. There is no tours and you walk into a large room that has some computers you can play on. You can go into their store but not many things to purchase.

I wasn't expecting much from this place and I was right. There is not much to do here apart from a small history of the company, some games and a store. No tours were available when we came.

Great place to get a feeling for the history of Microsoft and see some of the new things to come. Check out the store too

There's not a lot here, but a little display with some artifacts about the history of Microsoft and some of it's achievements. There are some stations set up where you can play games and try some of their other products they're developing.

Made it within 5 mins of closing and was trying to be shopping as efficiently as possible, but all I found were cheaply made tshirts and mugs and useless things. Any electronics are 'staff only' and here's a warning. Don't lean over the barricades too...More

It's free. Parking is free, too. I'd say you need from one hour to one hour and half. You might want to extend it and take a walk around the campus. The Visitor Center is located on the north side of the SR 520. The old... More

The tour is free. Visitor parking is free as well. The tour is not too long maximum 1.5-2 hours. Have some time reserved to walk around the Microsoft Commons campus.

You can do it in as little as about, or as long as 3. There is the history of MS, technology, and current products to get your hands on
