Current special exhibits include…

* Strange Kozmic Experience: A look at The Doors’ Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix — three voices of their generation who died within months of each other in 1970-71. The exhibit celebrates their musical legacy in modern music and features several artifacts such as costumes, hand-written lyrics, instruments and other collectibles.

* Michael Jackson: A Musical Legacy: The exhibit serves as a follow-up to the earlier Michael Jackson: HIStyle exhibit, which opened in February 2009, and the temporary memorial display, erected just after the King of Pop’s passing.
