But this isn’t just any exhibition; this is one of those multi-sensory journeys through 50 years of one of the most iconic rock groups of all time.

It’s not just a display of the band’s objects and history, it’s an interactive experience that takes you back in time, that makes you live the band in chronological order, representing every chapter of the band’s story.
