Experience Music Project, Seattle

Would-be rock stars (or kids who just like to make noise) should make a beeline for Seattle’s Frank Gehry-designed Experience Music Project for fantasy jam sessions and the like in a first-rate sound studio. Indeed, in the Sound Lab, youngsters can learn to DJ or play an instrument – and even record a CD to take home with them – while the On Stage experience lets them emulate starring in a live show and review their performance after the fact on a closed-circuit television (they can even have a photo taken of the "band" to be blown up into a full-size, rock star-esque poster). Other exhibits that earn the space a mention as a stellar museum for kids are the showcase of musical history through memorabilia and recorded interviews with greats like Pearl Jam member Mike McCready.
