"GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World” Touring Exhibition

Perhaps Joan Jett summed up what many guitarists feel when she said, “My guitar is not a thing. It is an extension of myself. It is who I am.”

It's that type of passion for the guitar that is fueling interest in the “GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World” Touring Exhibition. 

Produced and curated by the National Guitar Museum, the exhibit is currently at the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh until the end of September.

Built to have a little something for everyone one, Folkie to Rocker alike, this exhibit will make you want to go to a museum. 

It boasts dozens of guitars including acoustic, electric, historical, unusual and antique. 

And of course visitors will be learning the history of the guitar, the science behind creating a guitar and it's impact on music and pop culture. 

The National Guitar Muesum Museum Advisors include rock guitar greats Ritchie Blackmore, Steve Howe, Steve Vai, Johnny Winter and Joe Bonamassa, so you know the exhibit is bound to a little bit educational and a lot of Rock & Roll.

Chaulk full of interactive elements and sound stations, the “GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World” exhibit sounds like the perfect Rock & Roll summer family destination.
