The Buffalo Museum of Science is rockin' a cool display that celebrates guitars, vibration and sound. There are plenty of hands-on exhibits for kids of all ages including the world's largest playable electric guitar.
Right next door is the 7 One Picks exhibit presented by the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame. Greg Hennessey put together the collection of guitars and memorabilia. He says "there are a lot of local legends represented here including "David Lucas, he was the more cowbell guy."
Here you'll find a Goo Goo Dolls guitar and one from local kid song star Glenn Colton. Michael Spriggs is represented here, he was a Brit who grew up in Buffalo and was in The Rogues a popular local band.
