My oldest son tells me that Seattle is the home of grunge music and it showed at this museum. Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, and Nurvana to name a few that were highlighted.

It was an incredible experience and would highly recommend it if you ever get to the Seattle downtown area.
We stayed outside the downtown and took their light rail in. Took about a half hour to get there. Ate dinner at a great place with two of my cousins. Had more fun watching these white hatted chefs yell out menu orders amid the flying spatulas and flaming grills. Just like Ramsey of Hell's Kitchen minus the swearing and they even posed for me when I wanted to snap a pic of them. Unfortunately there was a glitch in my camera and so didn't get one that turned out. Below is the lobby with 700 instruments, mostly guitars (there is a girl on the right of it to compare the size it was.
Some of the album covers along the viewing area of the Music Museum. They also had a section highlighting the history of leather jackets, all kinds from movies. I didn't take any pics of that section because I'm not "into" leather jackets. Also was a room with guitars dating from the late 1800s to the present. You could hear the story behind each guitar and then hear a 30 sec spot of how it sounds.
Elliot Bay waterfront
Something magical and a very common site to see a very small tugboat pulling a very large barge. Goodbye Seattle till we meet again!
