GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World
FEATURING THE WORLD'S LARGEST PLAYABLE GUITAR
SEPTEMBER 26, 2020 - JANUARY 10, 2021

"GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World" takes visitors of all ages on a fascinating and engaging exploration of the art, science, sound, history, and pop culture behind the world's most popular instrument! Featuring a unique collection of more than 70 instruments —ranging from the rare and antique to the wildly popular and innovative—along with performance video, models and more,"GUITAR" gives you a chance to interact with the instrument not only from the perspective of its history, evolution, and design, but through the music it has created and the technology that continues to enhance it.

The guitar is one of the most enduring icons of the past 200 years, evolving from European and Asian instruments during the Middle Ages (oud, sitar, and lute). In "GUITAR," these instruments are displayed side by side next to the guitar as we know it today, with its signature hourglass shape. Packed with STEAM-based elements, GUITAR introduces visitors to concepts including electromagnetism, sound waves, frequency, decibel levels, mathematical scales, engineering design, and materials—along with amplification, memory skills, and performance."GUITAR" explores all facets of the guitar's history as an instrument of popular culture over four centuries to the science of creating sound with wood and steel.

Be inspired! Come explore, play and enjoy "GUITAR"!
