  • 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.
  • Interesting exhibits showing the instruments and musical styles popular over the last hundred or so years. If you're in North County, this is a worthwhile stop for a couple of hours.
  • 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.
  • This place is a hidden gem. Was so fun to walk around and explore the different eras and genres of music. Lots of interactive things for the five year old. She thought it was so neat to play the instruments. Highly, highly recommended.
  • Loved being there. Learned so much. Loved the Micheal Kennedy exhibit. Want to bring my grandchildren.
