    Pretty interesting museum. Lots of interactive stuff: piano’s guitars, a voice booth (which says you’re a tenor no matter how high you sing) and also some really peculiar instruments. You can spend about two, three hours tops here.

    Hello :) Thanks for stopping by and leaving us a reivew! A lot of those "peculiar instruments" are used by artists for recording. You can see a few demonstrated during our Backstage Pass Tour only done on Sundays. All the best,

    I love playing music, and while some exhibits were a bit boring, there was some amazing displays that were very interactive. Go if you have a passion and love for music.
