Do you think discovering new things while on holiday beats sunbathing and daily Margarita hangovers? Then we’ve got a fantastic new travel guide for you. Celebrity geeks have shared their favourite geeky places to explore around the world, so you can keep feeding your mind on holiday as well as topping up your tan. Read below for the best geek travel tips from HostelBookers.com

Travel tips

London, United Kingdom

Geek tip: The Wellcome Collection

Located in north London, the Wellcome Collection displays eccentric 19th-century world traveller Sir Henry Wellcome’s permanent collection of medical oddities.

Stephen Fry, Qi Quizmaster (BBC 2), broadcaster and writer says:

“I’d recommend the Wellcome Trust, 215 Euston Road London. The best collection of medical art and paraphernalia in the world, and usually very fascinating and specific temporary exhibitions too. Always worth a visit and often overlooked.”

Washington, USA

Geek tip: The Steven F Udvar-Hazy Center

A part of the National Air and Space Center, aircraft on display include the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, the fastest jet in the world, and Enola Gay.

Alan Henry, Lifehacker.com writer says:

“I recommend the Steven F Udvar-Hazy Center, operated by the Smithsonian Institution’s National Air and Space Museum. It features great special exhibits, is inside a massive airplane hangar, and is the home of Space Shuttle Enterprise, and soon, Discovery! You can sit inside, see the SR-71 Blackbird, and walk through the history of aviation and spaceflight all in one day!”

Mitaka, Japan

Geek tip: Ghibli Museum

A beautiful museum celebrating the output of Studio Ghibli, the Japanese animation house responsible for Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away.

Ryan Estrada, Comic Book Artist (including DC comics online) says:

“The artwork in the Ghibli Museum doesn’t hang on the wall in frames. Loose drawings sit in piles on top of desks, next to binders of storyboards for every film they’ve made. Film prints sit in hand-cranked projectors ready for you to explore them frame by frame. Watch original animation, or even see it created right before your eyes. The art is there to be explored, not viewed.”

  1. I loved the Ghibli museum! The tickets are pieces of film and you get to see one of their shorts, in addition to the exhibits. It’s not the largest of museums, and probably not the most exciting if you don’t know all (or any) of the movies. Also note that you need to buy tickets for a certain time frame on a certain day in advance.
