The EMP in Seattle: Nirvana and Nerdvana Combined in One Museum

Feeling rebellious? It's time for you to go to the EMP for the much awaited Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses exhibition. Not into Nirvana? How about seeing the Avatar and Battlestar Galactica exhibitions instead?

The EMP is the coolest museum in the Pacific Northwest. You’ll get to see everything from music, science fiction and pop culture.

Of course, the two biggest stars at the EMP are Pacific Northwest natives Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain. Right now you have the opportunity to see the world’s biggest Nirvana exhibition. As a Nirvana fan, I was impressed to see almost a whole floor of artifacts and photography of the band. I had to stop myself from buying everything in the gift shop.

Not a big Nirvana fan? That’s okay. How about going to the Avatar exhibition instead?

You’ll get to see authentic costumes and sketches from the movie. I loved the interactive displays! You can make your own Avatar plant and even become a full-sized Avatar in a big screen.

For a limited time, you can also go to the Battlestar Galactica exhibition seeing the full-sized spaceships (Viper Mark 2, Viper Mark 7 and Cylon Raider) was really impressive.
