The Pearl Jam 20 Museum: A TFT Guided Tour

by Jessica Letkemann on October 27, 2011

Pearl Jam Twenty - Movie Released Sept 20.


As all of the Pearl Jam Twenty festivities wind down with the release of the DVD, we’re capping off all the looking back with goodies we have put together based on the whole experience.

Even if you didn’t make it out to the wilds of Wisconsin for the PJ20 Destination Weekend September 3-4, we’re sure the tales of the Pearl Jam museum the band put together for the purpose reached your ears. Fans were not only invited to come in and gawk at all of the archival bliss (from Eddie’s typewriter and a case full of his notebooks to Jeff’s hats and smashed Mike guitars to the actual PEARL JAM letters from the cover of Ten), everyone was also welcomed to take as many pictures of the “exhibits” as they wanted to. No wonder the line was three hours long by Sunday afternoon.

Well, whether you made it in or just want to take a more leisurely look at what was inside, we’ve made an annotated little video of most of the Museum’s stuff, and set it to “Do The Evolution” (from the PJ20 soundtrack of course). Have a look see, and feel free to stop it as you see fit to take in all of the photos and descriptions fully.
