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.
The EMP is very interactive, and has great local artist representation. We loved the audio tour and exhibits where you could play instruments, mix, and get 'behind the scenes' info. We hope to get back some day!
I can't think of a better museum showcase for rock music. My family went to Seattle and ran the Marathon. After going to Pike Place shopping we visisted the EMP. Should have allowed much more time to take this in.
The hands on music booths/sound rooms were so coool, especially like "come as you are". I will visit many more times.
Hats off to whoever put this together.
The EMP has something for everyone - go check it out! Their feature exhibit changes from time to time, so check their website to see whats going on before you visit. The mere size of the EMP's music memerobilia collection is worth the trip alone!
I took my daughter there with 2 friends for her 13th birthday present. They had a blast jamming at the On Stage. I like the hands-on experience with all the different musical things. Very much a museum with interaction completely in mind! We will definitely be making a trip back!
I've visited the EMP twice and loved it both times. If you're a musician it's a great place to jam, goof off with the various equipment and even make a CD if you want. The guitar section was informative and has guitars dating back to when they were first invented. I enjoyed all the old rocknrollers clothing (Elvis was a little fellow, so was janis joplin).
The only negative thing that I encountered was the bar areas where the drinks and snacks were a little too expensive, but I would go back in a minute and buy me another beatles cap :)
Volunteer Park displays the Olmsted brothers' late Victorian urban style of park design. Vistas of rolling lawns, carefully clumped shrubbery,
tree lined drives and carp ponds almost make you feel like you're strolling with top hat and cane in ...
With numerous fun but tacky tourist shops and the Alaskan Way Viaduct thundering overhead, it's a wonder any natives visit
Seattle Waterfront. The views are spectacular, the Bainbridge Island ferry leaves from Colman Dock, and the popular Summer Nights ...
The exhibits at the Center for Wooden Boats are not hidden behind glass. Instead, the wooden boats that make up
this museum are out on the water, waiting to be touched and boarded. More than 100 historical boats are ...
