The Museum of Pop Culture (formerly the Experience Music Project) is a popular music museum in Seattle. It was donated by Paul G. Allen, co-founder of Microsoft and former owner of the Seattle Seahawks, and is located on the Seattle Center campus adjacent to the city's landmark, the Space Needle. The museum opened in 2000.
MoPOP, as it is affectionately known in Seattle, is one of the city's most famous museums. In a futuristic building, music lovers can enter a world of Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, music videos and rock music in a general sense and spend hours wandering through recent music history. That alone is reason enough to seek out this place.
