Rock out and discover the science and history behind the instrument that revolutionized music: the guitar. Explore all facets of the world's most popular instrument – from its evolution into an instrument of popular culture to the science of creating sound with wood and steel. Play the world's largest guitar, see more than 60 instruments ranging from the rare and antique to the wildly popular, investigate how different materials affect a guitar's sound and much more!

GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World gives you the chance to interact with the guitar through hands-on interactives, performance video, audio and stunning images. The exhibition is composed of three elements: the science of sound; the evolution, engineering and design of the guitar; and the guitar's cultural impact.
