    I have been working at EMP Museum full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    At EMP, I'm surrounded by people who share a love of the content of the museum, including Music, Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy, Comic-Books, Video Games, etc. etc. etc.

    Cons

    Not a Con, but a challenge: Like most non-profit Arts & Culture institutions. We've always got to figure out how to remain financially sustainable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never underestimate the power of staff that deeply cares about what we do.

'Scuse me while I kiss this museum. Seattle's Experience Music Project (EMP) sprang from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen's passion for all things Jimi Hendrix. Allen owned the world's largest collection of the guitar virtuoso's memorabilia, which he wanted to share with all music fans.
