RollingStonesLogoThe Rolling Stones “Exhibitionism” has arrived in New York City – and if you’re a true fan of the iconic band, you won’t want to miss it.

The massive exhibit, which was in England before landing in the Big Apple, drops you straight into The Stones’ heyday with a replica of the London flat the original members shared (including a disturbingly untidy kitchen); a reproduction of the studio the band first recorded in; and a 3D concert video reenactment of the band performing “Satisfaction” with Mick Taylor.

There’s even a fully interactive exhibit that allows you to remix classic Stones’ songs.

“Exhibitionism” contains an abundance of tasty artifacts like Keith’s diary from the early-’60s; the band’s first U.S. tour program and their first record contract from back in the day. It amounts to paradise for the Stones faithful.

The exhibit is being presented at Industria in the West Village, and it will remain there until March 12th. Tickets are on sale now. We suggest blocking out the entire afternoon because there’s plenty to see (and hear). It could be the first museum exhibit you have trouble walking away from.
