EMP is a museum dedicated to artist and creative exploration of popular music as well as lots of history on the Pacific Northwest Music Scene. Some of the fabulous exhibitions are the Sound and Vision room where you can watch video clips of artists re-living the creation of a song or reminiscing a performance. The Northwest Passage documents the Northwest music scene with pictures and articles as well as memorabilia from the early 1950’s through today. Guitar Gallery pays homage to the guitar as it became larger, went electric, and finally came to dominate the stage as the signature instrument of rock ‘n’ roll. They also have a sound studio where you can play with every type of instrument you hear desires and even sing and record your own demo. It’s so much fun!
