This museum contains famous instruments from groups like the Beatles. The actual instruments used by famed musicians around the world. Very exciting for historians, musicians, and those who enjoy music.

We had a few extra hours for exploring and stopped at this museum. Much to our delight, it was one of the highlights of our trip to the Phoenix area. We would recommend it as a two-hour stop for kids, teens and adults.

The closest resort is the JW Marriott, which is a very nice resort and within walking distance. You are also close to Desert Ridge, a shopping center with a variety of restaurants.
