When I first learned that I’d be visiting the Music Instrument Museum in Phoenix during the spring Phoenix family travel media trip, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But I was certainly pleasantly surprised at the museum, and would definitely recommend a visit on your next family vacation to Phoenix.
The Musical Instrument Museum is a new addition to the Phoenix museum scene. It showcases musical instruments and music as a part of culture, and the exhibits focus on different cultures. Wearing special headphones, you’ll hear the music of a culture as you approach each gallery. While listening, you can see the different instruments of the culture that are on display.
There’s also a hands-on experience room, which is great for kids, as well as the Artist’s Gallery, featuring musical instruments from popular musicians. The Musical Instrument Museum is also home to many great local concerts and shows, as well as children’s programs.
