The gallery displays 55 vintage guitars from 1770 to the present, including impressive specimens played by musicians such as Eddie Van Halen, Bo Diddley, and Kurt Cobain. Give your own rocking performance in front of a virtual audience with the interactive on-stage exhibit. Walk through the science fiction and fantasy hall of fame to learn about the lives and work of some of the genre's greatest creators and innovators.

  • This museum has a little bit of everything for everyone. From space exploration movies, to fantasy land movies, they've got a lot to see. 
  • This visit exceeded my expectations. I was excited to go, but had an even better time than I thought I would. Interactive exhibits and very interesting. 
  • Koleksi pop culture di museum ini banyak sekali, mulai dari musik grunge hingga hello kitty, harus dikunjungi
