It was a very interesting little museum worth the look if you are interested in music and instrument history.

Took small grandkids. They have coloring and interactive activities little ones can enjoy even if they don’t understand the history part
Staff is pleasant. Use a Groupon or Living Social
Something to take up an hour or so on a cool or hot day

This place is such a great way to spend sometime looking back on music's past and then checking out some of the latest music creations. If you love music this place is for you. We have a 18 year old that is very involved with music (jazz choir and violin) and she has had a great time exploring the 2 times we have been. Our 6 year old also had a great time exploring the various instruments, she especially loved the harp in the instrument room. The staff are always friendly and knowledgeable of course.

I learn something new each time I visit! Until the end of the month, they have an exhibit on the harp guitar. Also on display is a piano that was in the theatre the night Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. Electric vehicles can be charged with paid admission while visiting the museum. Friendly and knowledgeable staff!

Delightful museum for adults and kids. Lots of hands-on instruments, one in each gallery and a whole roomful of them with headphones. Present special exhibit is on harp guitars!
