Experience Music Project (EMP)

I wanted to go to this museum to check out Frank Gehry's new architecture masterpiece for Paul Allen's music museum. From the Space Needle, you can look down at the massive pile of metal, which is suppose to represent a crumpled guitar. Its state-of-the-technology atomosphere is an exciting experience for musicians & non-musicians alike. It's an amazing place for the senses. There were plenty of artifacts and history to educate ourselves about different types of music movents. But there was also interactive rooms to create music. We had fun trying out the electric guitars to the turntables. I definitely need to go back for another visit all the things I might have missed. The only cons about the museum is the amount of crowds in the museum (which didn't help since the Bumbershoot Festival was right next door).
