Museum of Pop Culture is dedicated to contemporary popular culture, with exhibits focusing mainly on rock music and science fiction. Inside the unusual building--which resembles a large smashed guitar--you can visit the guitar gallery to learn about the development of one of rock music's defining instruments. 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.
