Reviews

Citysearchers and more than 200 Yelpers give the museum an average of 3.5 stars. More than 100 Yahoo! Travelers give it four stars. > * My wife and I have different tastes, but she’s a Rock and Roll lover and I’m a sci-fi geek, so this place was awesome for us… the used outfits, such as the space suit used by Spock in star trek the motion picture and the time machine part from Red Dwarf, it was perfect. – djackson, Yahoo! Travel > * The sound booths and the ‘jam’ areas are fantastic…we had so much fun. It’s good for advanced and beginners, much better than stuffy and expensive music lessons! The history of the guitar was amazing as well with everything from steel Hawaiians to stand-up eletric [sic] bass! – Dani, Yahoo! Travel > * I loved all of the music project part–all the interactive instruments, the great metal memorabilia, the cool videos, it was AWESOME. I love it! The sci-fi part was really amazing too. The architecture of this place is very cool, and completely unique. – Sandie S., Yelp

EMP Museum

EMP Museum is a tribute to cultural icons as well as a breeding ground for the next generation of musicians and societal shapers. Here, attendees don’t just stand before exhibits that explore Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana but throw down their own musical chops in interactive exhibits such as Sound Lab, where they riff on an electric guitar, bang on drums, and tweak acoustics behind a mixing console. On Stage also gets guests to grip instruments—but under the hot lights of the stage, where they can pretend to entertain legions of fans or accompany their nephew’s birthday party.

The museum also curates rotating exhibits that celebrate modern cultural achievements. These have showcased the impact of Nirvana’s career alongside historic artifacts as diverse as Hendrix's Electric Lady mixing console and Marty's hoverboard from Back to the Future II. As home to the Science Fiction Hall of Fame, the museum also spotlights luminaries such as Ray Bradbury and Steven Spielberg, who have shaped a generation’s imagination while warning people about the perils of suppressing ingenuity, ideas, and viewpoints.

All of the educational programming and special events unfold inside the architectural jewel that is the EMP Museum. Designed by Frank O. Gehry, the building’s 3,000 stainless-steel panels shimmer and seemingly swing through the air. This fluidity, which can alter its appearance depending on the time of day and light conditions, is about “reminding audiences that music and culture is constantly evolving,” as the museum’s website states.
