The EMP Museum
The EMP museum creates one of the most interesting stops in Seattle. It is a 140,000 square foot music museum at the Seattle Center. The museum takes you through music history by immersing you in nearly 80,000 artifacts including photos, sound archives, costumes, and musical instruments from notable artists. The Science Fiction Museum & Hall honors the greatest minds in the genre. Here viewers can pay homage to the celebrities of science fiction and participate in interactive and educational exhibits.
I loved EMP. very amazing stuff inside, including Nirvana's first recording contract with sub-pop records, hand written lyrics and a ton of other treasures, also there was an amazing Hendrix portion. and the floor where you go, and play instruments in "sound-proof" rooms! I had a blast, and I will definately come again, although if I were a boring old guy that didnt appreciate music, and rarities, I would probably be bummed.
oh... skip the sci-fi thing... I know there is a package, and its "only 6 more bucks".. but spend the six bucks on 6 slurpees or something.
The EMP was quite interesting and the interactive portion of the museum was fun but I don't think it was worth the price of admission. I wouldn't recommend it to people on a budget because of the price. But if it was lowered I may go again.
it is definitely a museum for folks who want to spend the time to fully process each display. In response to those who said it costs to much, do you realize that part of the admission fee goes toward funding educational opportunities?
It is kind of expensive but it is a awsome place. There are kinds of exhibits from musical instruments to clothes from famous musicians. There are even instruments that you can play which my kids loved. They even have places for you to record your own music. The thing I loved the most was the handwritten words to one of Tupac's songs.
My father,mother and sisters all went to the,EMP and I tell you what a let down,my father is in the EMP.EXIBIT
and they did not even have his name posted,nor any of the other members in the group
EMP has never even told us that the group was even there
a friend that happened to work there at the time told me that he saw my dads photo
with the group.I guess you never know where you be used??
I loved the interactive exhibits - the ability to listen to my own headset and dance around the place. There was not enough time in one day to experience all the great things about the Project. I can't wait to come back - Next time I will bring my 11 year old son who is more of a rocker than I am.
!What an incredible museum! I visited the museum TWICE in a week, and spent approximately 5 hours exploring each time! The section with the clothing from artists ranging from Patsy Cline, Jimi Hendrix, to Biggie Smalls and Kurt Cobain was beyond interesting, to say the least.
I listened to and read everything! The many versions of "Louie, Louie" were great~and yes! The Kingsmen did do it best! On through the Seattle influence of music...rock and roll to grunge was quite impressive.
The highight was the Jimi Hendrix exhibition. What a loving tribute!My sister and I were practically fixated by the music...and found ourselves mouthing the words and snapping our fingers to the soundtrack provided by the headphones. It was great to be able to play the songs or listen to the narration as many times as we wanted to. I was amazed at the amount of memoribilia collected, and how prolific a writer and artist Jimi was as a child. There was barely enough time to do the exhibit justice...
Thank you, Paul Allen for collecting and allowing us to be a part of The Experience!
If you are into a music experience this is it. We especially liked the history of the guitar. The Hendrix exhibit was very interesting. Plan to spend some time in the EMP. Hands on instruments was a topper. Just really enjoyed the whole "EMP" experience. Ofcourse the building itself was quite a site.
I went here on a school trip, and I think it is DEFFINATLY WORTH IT...ofcourse, we didnt have to pay much....and its more fun in bigger groups...i dont recommend doing the museum part....very boring...but on the second floor...very fun...dance studio thing...practice rooms...and making a band and DvD is very fun....i would deffinatly reccomend this....
Btw i just went there yesturday...
