We had a lovely time today! What an impressive place, and the 2 grandchildren, ages 8 and 10 loved it. We will be sure to go back when we can spend more time there.

Go in the afternoon if you want to avoid the school tours. The kids are cute, but noisy!

Allow plenty of time to read the many informational historical details of each showcased era of music, and enjoy the many instruments that are available for playing along the way! Beautiful collection of unique pianos, horns, banjos, guitars, and more, plus a nice gift shop! Wonderful place.

The windows screen at the end showing different music instruments of other countries would be awesome in a mini theater setting.

From Our Editors

Renovated in 2011, the Museum of Making Music showcases a permanent display of hundreds of unusual and vintage instruments charting the progression of song-crafting from 1900 to modern times. Five museum galleries present popular music, innovations in instruments and their manufacture, and marketing and distribution techniques in five eras throughout the 20th century. Racks of gleaming instruments line the cases, as well as more eclectic pieces such as double-neck guitars, the crossbreed GuitarViol, and an ancient, forgotten instrument whose name is always whispered: the "clarinet." The museum is dotted with interactive exhibits, giving visitors the chance to craft their own tunes on the exhibit's drum kits or keytar.
