West Coast premiere of "GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked the World," a new exhibition that has it all: Music. Technology. Science. Video. History. Pop culture. Games. Entertainment.

This exhibition presents visitors with an engaging, entertaining, educational and hands-on experience with one of the most important icons in history: the guitar. The guitar is the single most enduring icon in American history. This fully immersive exhibition explores all facets of the world’s most popular instrument, from its history as an instrument of popular culture over the past 400 years to the science of creating sound with wood and steel.

Visitors will experience the science, sound, history and cultural impact of the guitar in an exhibition that contains more than 60 instruments—ranging from the rare and antique to the wildly popular and innovative—along with performance video, audio, hands-on interactives, models, touchscreens, stunning images and photographs.
