and rebellious expression that defines American popular music. Featuring
a world-class collection of artifacts, unique architecture by Frank
O. Gehry, state-of-the-art technology, exciting interactive presentations,
and a dynamic ride-like attraction, EMP will encourage visitors

in its many forms.
to EMP will take an unprecedented and technologically advanced journey
that will inspire them to explore and celebrate music as never before.
EMP is dedicated to capturing and reflecting the essence of rock
'n' roll, from its roots in jazz, soul, gospel, country and the
blues, to its influence on hip hop, punk and other more recent genres.
EMP invites visitors to participate in a total sensory experience:
see rare artifacts and memorabilia, hear musicians tell their stories,
or play an instrument and create your own music. Learning about
music has never been so much fun.
was conceived by Paul G. Allen and Jody Patton. Paul Allen's early
passion for Jimi Hendrix led to his amassing of the world's largest
collection of Hendrix memorabilia, and later, his desire to share
that collection with the public. Early planning soon gave way to
a broader cultural mission for both Paul and Jody ÷ to create a
destination for celebrating musical innovation and for inspiring
young and old to feel moved by music ÷ and so Experience Music Project
collection includes more than 80,000 artifacts that helped shape
music history, including musical instruments (from one of the first
electric guitars to those used by artists such as Bob Dylan, Bo
Diddley, Muddy Waters and Kurt Cobain), an extensive recorded sound
archive, film, photographs, fanzines from around the world, stage
costumes, handwritten song lyrics and rare song sheets.
