Experience Music Project

Experience Music Project provides dynamic multifaceted, ever-changing experiences through new and exciting explorations of American popular music, which both entertain and engage visitors in the creative process. It is a new kind of museum, that strives to reflect the essence of rock and roll and its roots in jazz, soul, gospel, country, and the blues, as well as rock music's influence on hip hop, punk and other recent genres. Patrons can make their own music, see and learn about rare artifacts and memorabilia from EMP's collection of nearly 100,000 items, explore various musical milestones within unique interpretive exhibits, feel the power of the creative force by listening to musicians tell their own stories, and discover the joy of music in all its forms. Founded by investor and philanthropist Paul G. Allen, under the direction of co-founder Jody Patton, and designed by architect Frank O. Gehry, the 140,000 square foot multi-colored and "swoopy" museum rises up in the heart of Seattle at Seattle Center. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, EMP is online at http://www.emplive.com.
