The EMP Museum has had an interesting history since its creation. Founded by Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen, with a building designed by Frank Gehry, the museum is currently dedicated to the history and exploration of both popular music and science fiction of the Seattle area. It has had exhibitions that featured Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and Jimi Hendrix (among many others).

It was also home to the Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame (SFM) from 2004 until it closed that portion in 2011.

Typically, there will be a number of exhibits dealing with music through interaction or multimedia.

Note: the monorail runs through the building. Monorail!
