  • Where all great banjos go to die! What a great lil gem in the heart of Bricktown. A really cool place!
  • This is an awesome museum even if you aren't that into banjos or banjo music. There are a lot of really cool banjos in here, and also some Steve Martin memorabilia.
  • Really neat museum. The detailing on some of banjo's was impressive and was interesting to see the evolution through the ages.
  • Really neat place with lots of history. Great place to learn about music too. It is definitely worth stopping at. Perfect ending to walking the canals of bricktown.
  • This was a fun experience! I've never seen so many banjos in one location. I also had no idea that there was such a history to this instrument. Check this place out if you're in town!
