EMP Museum ( Museum Of Pop Culture ), Seattle Reviews

  • Absolutely loved this museum. It's right next to the Space Needle and the Seattle monorail station so it's super convenient. The exhibits here are outstanding and I only wish I could have spent more time there. The music area has "jam rooms" where you can play instruments with your friends and also interactive displays. But my favorite exhibit by far was the Marvel exhibition, which is only available for a limited time if I recall correctly. If you've got time in Seattle, definitely spend a few hours here.

  • I had visited when it was still the Experience Music Project years ago and oh how much it has changed! Now the Museum of Pop Culture, there was so much to experience. We loved the Indie Games Exhibit as our son wants to be a video game designer. The Marvel exhibit was amazing and I highly recommend adding it on to your experience. We got a membership so we can experience all that is has to offer it's entirety.

  • Loved this place. Didn't really know what it was before going. Getting to see all the stuff from movies and TV shows that I love was amazing. They have different special exhibits on, I got to see the marvel one which was great. I thought it was very reasonably priced and would go again.

  • The Marvel exhibit was awesome. There was a lot of great costumes and history there. Some of the other exhibits were a bit dated. Like the Fantasy area had some amazing stuff but it really could use some more new things like Game of Thrones or something. Worth a visit for sure though.

  • Truly enjoy this museum. It's my 3rd time visiting but it never disappoints me. The atrium has a mega screen that shows special music videos and the selected episodes of receivers of the Hall of Fame. The horror movie section is fantastic! The other regular displays give you some ideas about pop culture. A good place for family and friends to hang out.
