“Fueling contemporary popular culture”

The Museum of Pop Culture, or MoPOP is a nonprofit museum, dedicated to contemporary popular culture. It was founded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen in 2000 as the Experience Music Project. Since that time MoPOP has organized dozens of exhibits, 17 of which have toured across the US and internationally.The museum, which used to be known as Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame and later EMP Museum until November 2016, has founded many public programs including Sound Off!, an annual 21 and under battle-of-the-bands that supports the all-ages scene, and Pop Conference, an annual gathering of academics, critics, musicians, and music buffs.MoPOP, in collaboration with the Seattle International Film Festival presents the Science Fiction and Fantasy Short Film Festival, which takes place annually every winter at Seattle Cinerama Theater.

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.
