Museum of Popular Culture - Sunday July 21

"Guitar Tree" at the Museum of Pop Culture

We bought a CityPass that allows tourists to go to 5 attractions at a significant discount.  Our first stop was at the Museum of Pop Culture at the Seattle Center.  I would consider it a mini Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, but other genres of popular culture were considered.  It was founded in 2000 by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen as the Experience Music Project and is housed in a 140,000 square foot building designed by renown architect Frank Gehry.  Current exhibits include:
  • Pearl Jam Home and Away
  • Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses
  • Hendrix; Wild Blue Angel
  • Prince: From Minneapolis
  • Infinite Worlds of Science Fiction
  • Scared to Death: The Thrill of Horror Films
Roger McGuinn's Rickenbacher Guitar was featured
