Changing galleries feature temporary exhibits. Now featuring:
The Tempe Sound
The Tempe History Museum has long recognized the importance of local music and since 2010 we have been hosting free local music performances on a regular basis. We have become more involved in the local music scene, and so the timing is right to produce an exhibit that pays tribute to local music. “The Tempe Sound” features some of the community’s favorite pieces of Tempe music memorabilia, including guitars, t shirts and posters from notable Tempe bands like the Gin Blossoms, Meat Puppets, Dead Hot Workshop, Jetzons, and many more. Also included are artifacts from famous Tempe music venues like the Sun Club, Nita’s Hideaway, and Long Wong’s.
