    EMP...how much for a ticket....

    Although I thought the building's architecture, which was done by architect Frank Gehry (who also did the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain ), was pretty cool; I felt the Experience Music Project (EMP) was somewhat of a tourist trap.

    The Experience Music Project...

    The Experience Music Project was an overpriced joke. Stay away at all costs. Experience Music Project (EMP) is an interactive music museum that Microsoft's Paul Allen built. After shaking twenty bucks out of your wallet, they strap a backpack and this Star Trek device on your waist. (Leave it to a Microsoft guy to make a simple idea complex) A better name for the EMP would be the Jimi Hendrix Experience. The entire first floor is a Hendrix museum. I love Hendrix, but it was a bit overboard.

    Despite the fact it is a simple ploy to attract tourists and their money, I had a great time probably because I am a full grown kid.

    Unique Suggestions: The benefits of the Seattle center include EMP(cool building), the space needle(excellent view of the city on clear days;-)), a mini carnival, a short and sweet monorail that travels to the mall, and a few shops for gifts and food. It is also the home of key arena and the pacific science center.

    I thought this was a bit of a tourist trap but most of Seattle Center is. Personally I enjoyed spending time there but it's a touristy thing.
