On tour from the National Guitar Museum, Guitar  The Instrument That Rocked the World offers guests an entertaining, engaging and educational hands-on experience with one of the most important cultural icons in history.

The exhibit is comprised of three elements: the science of sound; the evolution, engineering and design of the guitar; and its cultural impact.

The exhibit engages visitors in an experience that is visual, tactile and aural. Guitar  The Instrument That Rocked the World has it all: music, science, history, Pop culture, video, education, interactives and games.

It has an immense cool factor and is designed from the outset to attract all age groups – from individuals to families. Kids, teenagers, adults . . . every age group has its own connection to the guitar, from classic rock songs and concert memories to film soundtracks and videogames. And the guitar has no boundaries: every form of popular music features the guitar.

On exhibit through May. Exact end date is TBD.

The exhibit features:

-More than 70 guitars (acoustic, electric, historical, unusual, antique)

-Hands-on interactives that demonstrate the science of sound and music

-World’s largest playable guitar - as certified by the Guinness Book of Records

-Photos, graphics, projections and illustrations

-Listening and viewing environments for each musical genre (classical, jazz, blues, country, folk, and rock)

This venue is wheelchair accessible.
