    Best 25$ and place where you can spend a rainy day in Seattle. Amazing place with totaly different exhibitions but all very interesting.

    This is a must if visiting Seattle. Two main areas- music and science fiction. The SF area has some great items from films and you can spend ages in the music experience playing instruments

    This place has really changed since it was the Jimi Hendrix Experience. The admission is pretty pricey even with the student discount as well.

    Great museum, but don't expect to spend a whole day. Nirvana and Hendrix exhibits were great

    Ryan · July 28

    Don't come expecting theme. If you love movie & music memorabilia or more precisely, WA St music memorabilia, you'll love it.

    The museum felt really small. I didn't really feel like it was worth the money.

  • Vanessa S.

    What a blast we had here. A full immersion on the history of music. Plus, you can have your own moment of "fame" playing instruments, singing etc, in the lab sound. Perfect place for all the family!

  • Gregg T.

    Nice place, with a peculiar variety of exhibits; sci fi, horror, rock music, pop music, video games. They have discounted tickets if you order online.
