  • This is an interesting little Museum with musical events. We come to Carlsbad frequently and even bought a membership one year.

  • I found out about this place when I was leaving Legoland, which is just down the street. My children are passionate about music and play a number of instruments. We stopped by and were amazed by the amount of information and staff who were so happy to share it. There's also a number of instruments that you are allowed to pick up and play, many of which we would probably not of had the chance to otherwise. Swing on by and check it out!!
  • Amazing place!! From precious instruments to historical video-recordings of famous artists; from exclusive interviews with composers and music producers; and from videos showing the instrument manufacturing process to the unique chance to play with an incredible array of instruments, this museum has it all. Well informed staff that pop up whenever you have a question and a truly gem of a music and books store. And the entrance fee is ridiculously low, too! Can't wait to bring the whole family for a fun filled afternoon here!!
