GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World - Carnegie Science Center

Strum away through interactive displays showcasing the history, evolution, and science of guitars. As the world’s most popular musical instrument, the guitar has been part of our culture for hundreds of years. It has been around longer than baseball, football, and hamburgers and is the most enduring icon in American history! It has changed people’s lives and it has changed society. This touring guitar exhibit showcases nearly 70 acoustic, electric, historical, and unusual guitars. The most unforgettable is the world’s largest playable electric guitar – 43 feet long and weighing as much as a small car (2,200 pounds!) This guitar has been certified by the The Guinness Book of World Records. Rock out to the history of guitars in this featured exhibit. GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World will take visitors through the evolution of guitars, from their design and sound, to their association with important musicians. For example, visitors will learn that the body of an acoustic guitar is held solely with pressure and glue, not nails and screws. Packed with STEM-based elements, GUITAR introduces visitors to the science of sound and the science of music through 15 hands-on interactives. Visitors will learn about electromagnetism, sound waves, frequency, decibel levels, mathematical scales, engineering design, and materials. Additional concepts include amplification, memory skills, and performance.
