Experience Music Project (EMP) is a museum dedicated to music. The 140,000 square foot facility was created to celebrate creativity and innovation as expressed through American popular music and culture.
The building was designed by architect Frank O. Gehry, who also designed the Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain (in case you were wondering why does the shiny metal ondulating exterior looks so familiar).
The exterior metal wall is really interesting -- in so me places, it changes color as you walk along it.
This museum is expensive, though: adults expect to shell out $19.95, kids age 7-12, $14.95. Not sure if they have student discount...
Please visit their website for hours of operation:
