Even though it’s in the heart of Seattle, The Museum of Pop Culture encourages groups of all sizes to enjoy the museum at their leisure. They welcome large groups to enjoy self-guided tours and even offer a convenient drop off location for those traveling by bus. To help you get there, we offer coach buses for larger groups, school buses for class field trips, mini coach buses for smaller teams or organizations, and mini buses for private parties.
MoPOP was founded in 2000 by Microsoft co-founder, Paul Allen. He called it the Experience Music Project. Since then, the Museum has curated dozens of exhibits, including 17 that toured both nationally and internationally. The Museum’s architect, Frank O. Gehry, sliced several electric guitars to pieces and used them as inspiration for the rock ‘n’ roll themed architecture. His final exterior product is a fusion of textures made up of three thousand panels of painted aluminum shingles. Depending on the angle you view the building, you will see a variety of colors and light arrangements. His intention was to remind us that music and culture is constantly evolving. In addition to musical performances, the MoPOP also features cinematic arts. Each year they host the Science Fiction + Fantasy Short Film Festival. This genre-driven festival features cinematic art from around the world. Their goal to use pop culture as a catalyst for learning, connecting and creating shines through in all of their programming.
