The Museum of Making Music features an interactive area where visitors can create their own music using the museum’s instrument collection. The center envisions a world in which the joy of making music is an element of daily life. A world in which everyone has a desire to learn music and the opportunity to be taught at the Museum of Making Music.
You’ll hear a lot of it during your visit. From the marches and rags of the early 1900s, through the evolutionary sounds of jazz, folk, rock ‘n roll, and pop, to the cross-cultural expressions of today’s connected world.
It’s the soundtrack of our lives, and it’s also part of a much larger story… the story of how an industry—the music products industry—supplies the world with the instruments, products and gear that we all use to make music.
And it’s a story we think you’ll enjoy! When you step into the galleries (and back in time) you’ll see outstanding examples of musical instruments, many of them displayed in vintage music store settings. You’ll also hear some familiar tunes in audio and video clips, have many hands-on opportunities to pick up and play a variety of instruments and discover the innovative ways that the music industry has grown over the years. It’s an insider’s view of the world of making music—and it’s all here at the Museum of Making Music!
Don’t miss a beat! Visit the Museum of Making Music today and discover a world of music and music-making.
