Together, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen and Burpee Museum of Natural History have created a one-of-a-kind exhibit that tells the story of Rick's passions for guitars, music and Rock & Roll. Unlike any museum exhibit they have ever seen before, and through a state-of-the-art multimedia experience, visitors step into the mind of one of Rock & Roll's legends.
For the first time, you'll be able to view and learn about the different guitars that Rick has added to his legendary collection over the years. Take a tour through music history with this unique presentation of artistry and sound.
Visitors will encounter a video-enhanced multimedia experience of one of music’s most enigmatic legends. The exhibit will feature Rick’s past, present and future; his guitars, his clothing, his amplifiers; travel documents and personal memorabilia. It will also feature the guitars of some of Rick’s famous musician friends and the stories that connect them.
For $18 you can view the entire exhibit and stick around to tour the rest of the Burpee Museum. ($15 for Local Residents and Burpee Museum Members pay only $3)
