Sound Track.

Permanent Exhibit

Sound Track.

Go inside the Giant Guitar to learn about how your favorite guitar riffs begin. Be mesmerized by our very own George Rhoads-designed Sound Machine. Take control of the Reactable, part digital DJ table, part futuristic musical instrument.

Do it all and more in the Muller Family Sound Track, the biggest exhibit area on the first floor of MOXI.
