  • Loved this experience! You get to try out instruments and listen to old recordings. But the best part is the staff. One guy in particular was amazing. My husband and I had all kinds of odd questions (like when accordions became popular, how pianos were delivered, and what material records were originally made of) he always had fantastic answers for us and expanded on the related history answering lots of "why". Wish I had read his name tag.
  • An awesome place to visit! Especially if you love music. I visited here with the family and the younger ones (they’re teenagers) really enjoyed getting to play with the instruments. Very educational and love how interactive the whole museum is. Definitely recommend!
