Bob Dylan Center.

Bob Dylan Center

We learned so much about Bob Dylan's career. Lots of music and interviews to hear through the provided headphones. The Center is not huge, but plan on a 2 hour visit. Be sure to watch the whole immersive movie in the first room to really appreciate his career. Upstairs is mostly memorabilia. It is not intuitive how to learn about the items. We had to ask a guide (who told us they weren't allowed to post a sign with instructions).

For Dylan fans this is a highly recommended stop. All others can probably be fine missing it. It would not be much fun for children or adults who aren't fans.

Bob Dylan Center

Opened in May 2022, the museum covers Dylan's life and career. Visitors are provided with a headset and phone to tap at different parts of the museum, and audio is provided explaining the exhibit the visitor is seeing. A dual ticket option is available to also see the Woody Guthrie Center next door.
