EMP is a leading-edge, nonprofit museum, dedicated to the ideas and risk-taking that fuel contemporary popular culture. With its roots in rock ‘n’ roll, EMP serves as a gateway museum, reaching multigenerational audiences through our collections, exhibitions, and educational programs, using interactive technologies to engage and empower our visitors. At EMP, artists, audiences, and ideas converge, bringing understanding, interpretation, and scholarship to the popular culture of our time.
Housed in a 140,000 square foot Frank O. Gehry designed building, EMP includes multiple innovative galleries; an interactive Sound Lab; Sky Church—a concert venue with state-of-the-art sound and lighting that houses the largest indoor LED screen in the world; and a significant historic music collection of approximately 140,000 objects, including 80% of all musical output produced in the Northwest during the last century.
