EMP Seattle

Pictures taken on a visit with Tom to the EMP Museum (Experience Music Project) in a Frank O. Gehry-designed building at the Seattle Center next to the Space Needle, Saturday 6 April. (We could've had a Gehry design for Te Papa in Wellington if we'd played our cards right.) The museum is a mix of pop culture, mainly music and film, with prominent exhibits during our visit including The Lure of the Horror Film, Hendrix in London, and Nirvana: Punk to the Masses.
