UNION CITY, Tenn. – Let your inner rock star shine as you wind your way through the newest, most interactive exhibit to date, “The Science of Rock N Roll” now open through Sept. 4 in the ATA Traveling Exhibit Hall at Discovery Park of America.
The exhibit is hands-on, with guests getting a chance to play the bass guitar, electric guitar, drums, and enjoy a larger-than-life live rock band performance in the live performance theater, among many other interactive opportunities.
The narrative begins in the early 1950s and progresses through Elvis, the Beatles and Rolling Stones, punk, new wave, MTV, grunge and the rise of indie music in the 21st century. From the transistor radio to the latest in digital technology, those attending will be amazed at how much science and technology are involved in creating the amazing rock-and-roll sounds we have all grown up with.
Discovery Park of America has planned fun events in conjunction with the exhibit: Rockin’ Out at the Museum takes place July 28; and a celebration of the decades of rock during Rocking Through the Ages Aug. 18.
The exhibit will also be available for guests during the June 15 “Members Only Park after Dark.” Anyone who would like to attend the Park after Dark needs to purchase an annual pass.
