20 Years of MoPOP: Name Change to Museum of Pop Culture

MoPOP ticketing counter

To celebrate 20 years of the Museum of Pop Culture, we're highlighting 20 of the most notable moments from MoPOP's history. For our nonprofit museum's 16th milestone (see the first 15 milestones at the bottom of this blog!), we're spotlighting our 2017 name change to Museum of Pop Culture.

2017: From science fiction to fantasy, fashion to video games, the Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) reflects the vision for curating, exploring, and supporting the creative works that shape and inspire. In 2017, the name of the museum evolved to MoPOP to better reflect our mission, and to bring genuine human experience and perspective to pop culture through exhibitions, programs, and events that invite exploration and inspire creativity.
