A brand new Tupac museum is set to open its doors in Los Angeles next year, and the late rapper’s estate has given the project their full blessing.
The immersive museum will be open to the public from January. Pac’s family have been working in collaboration with the organisers for years to make it possible. It will only be in Los Angeles for a limited run before moving on to different cities, which will be revealed at a later date.
It describes itself as a “fully immersive, thought-provoking experience that explores the life and legacy of the acclaimed artist and activist.” However, only children above 14 can attend due to “strobe lighting effects, simulated gunfire and sudden loud noises.”
Furthermore, the website states that it “leverages technology, contemporary art and never before seen artefacts from Tupac’s personal archives.” It is likely to be a once in a lifetime experience for any avid Pac fan.
The museum isn’t all just glitz and glam, however. It also promises to “delve into the greater meaning of his activism, music, and revolutionary art, as the exhibit educates and enlightens attendees through a labyrinth of emotions, as they take this journey through his extraordinary life.”
Tupac Shakur. Wake Me When I’m Free opens on January 21st at The Canvas, and tickets go on sale at wakemewhenimfree.com on November 12th.
