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. Purchase your ticket online in advance for a reduced price.

  • Could have easily spent all day here! There was an exhibit for everyone. Fact full of information and stories. The sky church was easily mind blowing and you could get lost in the visuals. Take your time and enjoy it. Don’t rush or run through!
  • Really fun place, better than I expect. Has a little bit of everything for everyone. There are rooms dedicated to music, rooms for science-fiction, rooms for horror genre(not for little kids!), rooms for fantasy/fiction, big room of Disney costumes. Very spacious, fun place just to hang out.
