Whether it’s a school field trip, a family outing or a just by chance visit, everyone has a story about their visit to the Museum of Pop Culture.
These stories can give us a behind-the-scenes look at the individuals who work at the museum and the meaningful, transformative experiences that guests had during their visit and how their experience entertained, educated and/or helped them gain a new perspective and appreciation for pop culture.
Building A Powerful Community For Seattle Youth
The Residency 2019 is a wrap but the youth involved will continue to develop their art for years to come. This year, we offered ____ local youth intensive workshops in creative songwriting, performance techniques, and beat production. They were able to record an EP in a professional studio, receive mentorships from professional artists, and the program culminated with a performance in MoPOP’s Sky Church. Check out the video to see the students and teachers in action. You make it possible.

From Sea to Shining Sea
"During my deployments, I get cards from the USO and find a place that matches to send it. Today I found your museum. This is my way of making the Army a little smaller to all of you. It is my handshake and thank you for providing such a wonderful place for people to visit. Pop culture has had a huge place in the military. Many pop culture icons have served in uniform.
May the force be with you."
- SFC Aaron N., U.S. Army, as told to Rachael Lovette, Content Marketing Manager
Something For Every Fandom
