ABOUT ROCK U: THE INSTITUTE OF ROCK 'N' ROLL

Rock U takes interactivity...and cranks it up to eleven, featuring stations and displays you won’t find anywhere else. Your guests can find their inner rock star with electric guitars, drums and percussion they can actually play!

  • Unique photo opportunities
  • Rock and radio history
  • Original Rock photography
  • Fun, challenging interactives
  • ...and much more.
We are very excited to partner with Stage Nine for the fourth time and bring the Our Rock U Industry partners highly entertaining and educational “Rock U” to Redding for the summer of 2016. Our members are eagerly awaiting this hands-on, family friendly opportunity and we know, as with the other Stage Nine exhibitions we have hosted, it will attract new guests to our museum.
