  • Unique place to see the history of modern music with friendly, knowledgeable, volunteer guides. Play various instruments. Kids will love it! Join the museum for special pricing to attend weekly events and workshops. Nice, modern building with easy access and plenty of parking.
  • Went on field trip with 6-10 year olds. Docent Jack was great, very knowledgable. Kids enjoyed the music and fun facts. Hands on with instruments was fun. Tour took about two hours including session with the kids on Brazilian timbau drums.
  • Loved being there. Learned so much. Loved the Micheal Kennedy exhibit. Want to bring my grandchildren.

Turns-out this place is in the lobby of NAMM (the trade association of music manufacturers), so there's certainly some credibility behind the effort. As music lovers, my wife and I really enjoyed it!
  • Great place to visit those who are interested in learning music..For sure this will give an idea about if a person has zero knowledge about Music..
