"Bob Dylan's American Journey 1956-1966" Exhibit at EMP, Seattle, Washington

Milestones Special Exhibits Gallery
— Traveling Exhibits

During a recent visit, we enjoyed one of the museum's "traveling" special exhibits — "Bob Dylan's American Journey 1956-1966."

"Bob Dylan's American Journey 1956-1966" Exhibit at EMP, Seattle, Washington

As a Dylan fan, this was the highlight of our visit. The fun interactive exhibit featured more than 150 artifacts, including
Dylan’s 1949 guitar, typed and handwritten lyrics, concert
posters, signed albums, dozens of old photographs, rare performance footage and interviews — we even got to listen to our favorite Dylan songs in each of the exhibit's six sound booths.
