Geocache Description:

Did you know that Sunnyvale has its own technology "museum"? They have some interesting displays of Silicon Valley's tech history there as well as some more "modern" exhibits. Their "gift shop" is quite extensive as well, so much so that you might have trouble leaving without taking something home with you.

The posted coordinates are for the parking lot of the "museum". To find the cache, locate the historical exhibits inside and around the glass pyramids inside and select the right answers to the questions below. Admission is FREE and the "museum" is open 8 am - 9 pm Monday - Friday, 9 am - 9 pm Saturday and 9 am - 7 pm Sunday.

All the answers are on the explanatory signs at the each exhibit. They are multiple choice because I hate trying to do math in the field.
