Closing January 4, 2015

The guitar has had a profound effect on American culture, but how much do you know about this versatile instrument? Guitar: The Instrument that Rocked The World traces its evolution from 3,000 BCE to the present. Explore a gallery of rare instruments and then experiment with the science of sound in a second gallery of fun playables and interactives. Kids can even take to the stage and play real keyboards, drums, and guitars.

In the hands-on gallery, you can:

Strum the world’s largest playable guitar, a 2,255-pound, 43-foot long Gibson
Test your musical memory by playing challenge riffs on a virtual fretboard
Bang out a beat on a variety of wood types. Which sounds the best?
“Freeze” a vibrating string using a strobe light
Design your own dream guitar

The rare instrument exhibit includes over 60 remarkable instruments such as:

Early Fender, Gibson, Ovation, and Martin guitars (from circa 1835 to present)
A Ztar Z7S synthesizer guitar with a button for every fret and string – 204 in all
The Rock Ock, the only playable guitar with 8 necks
A stunning PRS Dragon guitar inlayed with 238 pieces of gold, red and green abalone; mother of pearl; and woolly mammoth ivory
Guitars with outrageous paint jobs and shapes designed for rockers like ​Steve Vai
