  • NOT BAD ! We brought our 5 year old grand daughter here today. There was a lot of musical instruments on display and some were for visitor interaction but there was only one attendant running around helping people to engage properly with the musical instruments.

  • Don't judge the museum based on how small it is. It definitely has a lot of interesting facts and music pieces. The innovation studio is also pretty amazing because you can try out a bunch of different instruments. As a group we also played drums together in a large room. We also had Zach from NAMM come speak to us about what it is. It was pretty cool to see how big their conferences are every year. This is definitely a cool museum that everyone should experience. I know it just looks like an office building, but it truly is much more than that.
