Tips

  • 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.
  • On the southeast exterior of the EMP, where the monorail comes out of the building, get the Space Needle in the upper left corner, in between the tracks. Wait and shoot, as the monorail exits the EMP.
  • The museum is small enough to see every exhibit that interests you and big enough to get your money's worth. Get your tickets online, and plan some time to hang out at the Sky Church...
  • Designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry, this shrine to rock music and sci-fi is covered by 21,000 aluminum shingles, each painted to emulate the finish of an electric guitar. (From Aerial America)
