Austin could not be a better home for this exhibit focused on the history of music festivals.

Artifacts include Muddy Waters' '59 Martin acoustic played at the '68 Newport Folk Festival, a poster board stenciled sign by Banksy, and Dave Navarro's Jane's Addiction stage getup. Curated by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. March 10-July 23, Mon.-Sat., 9am-5pm, Sun., 12-5pm. $9-13.
