The museum’s newest exhibit, “Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll,” features iconic instruments in music history.

Museumgoers can get up close and personal with roughly 130 famed instruments and costumes.

Some pieces include Jimi Hendrix’s Flying V guitar, along with John Lennon’s 12-string, and Keith Richards' custom Les Paul.

The instruments were donated from various institutions, private collectors and the musicians themselves.
