Since EMP Museum opened in 2000 and SFM in 2004, EMP Museum|SFM has welcomed more than 3.7 million visitors through its doors. EMP Museum|SFM is housed in a 140,000 square foot Frank O. Gehry-designed building. This spectacular, prominently visible structure has the presence of a monumental sculpture set amid the backdrop of the Seattle Center.
EMP Museum is dedicated to the exploration of creativity and innovation in popular music and dance. By blending interpretative, interactive exhibition with cutting-edge technology, EMP Museum captures and reflects the essence of rock ‘n’ roll, its roots in jazz, soul, gospel, country and the blues, as well as rock’s influence on hip-hop, punk and other recent genres. Visitors can view rare artifacts and memorabilia and experience the creative process by listening to the music and having the artists tell their own stories.
