Rock U: The Institute of Rock 'N' Roll

Turtle Bay's website says this about the exhibit, "'Rock U' is an interactive adventure into one of North America's greatest institutions: rock and roll! Guests explore the foundations of Rock dating back to the 1950s, focusing on the lives of early greats such as Elvis Presley, the Beach Boys, and Buddy Holly, hear live concerts through listening stations, and even get to try their hand at playing instruments! This one is sure to please rock fans of all ages!"

I was really impressed! There are lots of instruments to play on and great info and stations to listen to music and learn about the greats of Rock & Roll. Check out the video below to get a feel for the exhibit.

Don't go in looking for a restful time, though, it is LOUD in there. With all the instruments to experiment on, the volume level is high.
