    Went here two hours before closing time, which was enough to see the exhibitions that you wanted to see. Very interesting place, with many things to see. Good for all ages!

    The Pearl Jam exhibit was one of the most overwhelming experiences. If you are a fan - this is a must do! Also loved the Nirvana and Jimi Hendrix exhibits.

    I was expecting something more/else. Do not know myself what exactly, so all I saw was kind of good. Music part about Nirvana, Jimi and PJ was my favorite. While movies were just fun to take photos.

    Hard to miss the giant tower of guitars. Lots of things to do and see if you're into video games, fantasy stories and guitars and music, esp Hendrix and Nirvana

    I've never had a bad time here! Every room is always interesting. It never gets old or boring due to the fun and topical rotating shows. It has something captivating for all ages. Truly an experience.

    Super cool museum, I loved the fantasy exhibit! Well worth a visit even if you're only in town for a few days. They offer student tickets and combo tickets with the space needle.

    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!

    Especially Make sure to see the Nirvana Exhibit (central), Pearl Jam exhibit (South), & Horror exhibit (south). Nirvana needs the most time to get the most out of it. U Need 1.5hr-4hr total at MoPop

    If you are a movie junkie, stick to the first floor for Horror, Sci-fi and Fantasy film memorabilia. The second floor has a wing dedicated to musical influencers and an electronic room for gamers.

    The music focused stuff is great, but there's a lot more here. The film and culture focused exhibits are also excellent, just wish it stayed open later.

    Just love this place, probably the best place to be in Seattle! Spend four hours in two days and really enjoy its music lab, learned some tricks, singing skills and instruments. LOVE THIS, MUST BE!

    The museum is small enough to see every exhibit that interests you and big enough to get your money's worth. Get your tickets online, and plan some time to hang out at the Sky Church...

    Building architecture from the outside is stunning but once you are in there is not that much to see. The horror movie and fantasy land exhibition are the best.

    This place is awesome, specially the part where you can play with all kinds of musical instruments. I am a fan of Nirvana, and as so, I really enjoyed the exhibition.

    Dedicated to contemporary pop culture, music, and science fiction, exhibits here are largely interactive — the Sound Lab allows visitors to explore the latest in musical gear and audio technology.
