GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World, presented by Harsco and sponsored by Bayer and Bobby Rahal Lexus, gives you the chance to interact with the guitar through hands-on interactives, performance video, audio and stunning images. The exhibition is composed of three elements: the science of sound; the evolution, engineering and design of the guitar; and the guitar’s cultural impact. Entrance into the guitar exhibit is included with Harsco Science Center admission. 


GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World is a Touring Exhibition of The National GUITAR MUSEUM.
