“Fueling contemporary popular culture”
The EMP is absolutely awesome and one of the coolest collections of musical stuff in the world. They have instruments that belonged to pretty much every "Rock God" to ever live, and that's not including the 100 foot tall guitar pillar that meets you in the entrance. Kurt Cobain fans will love the Nirvana exhibit that includes some of Kurt's own hand written lyrics.
Was just there this past week with my daughter after she graduated. We had a fantastic time! The sound lab upstairs was awesome! She seriously could have spent hrs and hrs up there...lol...for those that say it was overpriced...it wasn't! Do your research- if you don't like what they offer...don't go...I bought the city pass...and it was great!
Overpriced for what was offered. I think they are currently between exhibits, so a significant portion was roped off.
Not worth the admission price
Great stuff to see. And mini recording studios! Lots of fun
Awesomeness!! Give yourself enough time....
Awesome hangout place for Star Wars and Nirvana fans!
