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.
