    The "AC/DC: Australia's Family Jewels" exhibit is set to open April 28, 2012 and run through Sept. 29, 2012 at the EMP Museum in Seattle, Washington.

    EMP Museum is proud to be the only North American venue to host "AC/DC: Australia's Family Jewels." Developed and presented by the Arts Centre Melbourne and the Western Australian Museum in association with AC/DC, Albert Music, and Sony Music, this is the first and only fully endorsed exhibition to bring to life the history, creativity, and power of one of the world's greatest rock bands. The exhibition will feature more than 400 artifacts including photos, instruments, 35 years of gig posters from shows staged around the world, letters, lyrics, and costumes, including an extremely rare Angus Young schoolboy outfit and his 1975 home sewn "Super Ang" costume, complete with gold and red satin cape.
