The EMP Museum (formerly known as Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame )is a museum dedicated to the history and exploration of music and science fiction. The Frank Gehry designed museum is located in Seattle Washington.

The museum contains mostly rock memorabilia and technology-intensive multimedia displays. The EMP Museum showcases rare artifacts from popular music history and allows the visitor to experience music through interactive exhibitions like Sound Lab and On Stage. The Northwest passage was dedicated to the history of Seattle music, including Jimi Hendrix, Heart and the Grunge Music Genre.

The structure itself was designed by Frank Gehry, and resembles many of his other works in its sheet-metal construction. Much of the building material is exposed in the building’s interior. The central “Sky Church” room pays homage to Jimi Hendrix and other rock ‘n’ roll icons using a 40-foot (12 m) high, 70-foot (21 m) wide video screen and an 18-panel montage of images. In true Gehry fashion, this building is not only unique but visually stunning!
