The Funk Music Hall of Fame & Exhibition Center of Dayton Ohio (The Funk Center) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The Funk Center is being formed to provide a central location to house and display Funk memorabilia, hands on audio stations & kiosk, practice facilities for private music lessons, unique and meaningful audio arts programming for all children, to educate children in the Funk music genre, and to build a lifelong audience for Funk music. We plan to offer a dynamic and constantly-evolving program and exhibition space. Although we will incorporate all of the fine arts into our programs, our focus is on audio art. Most activities will be open-ended and enjoyed on a walk-in basis. The Exhibition Center/Museum will be staffed by working artists, and all structured activities will be led by master artist-teachers.For The Funk Music Hall of Fame & Exhibition Center and beyond, use our Dayton trip itinerary website to get the most from your Dayton vacation.
The Arts Education Partnership, in conjunction with the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities, commenced a study last year to examine the impact of arts experiences on young people and to explore why and how young people were changed through their arts experiences. Evidence demonstrates that children with high levels of arts participation outperform "arts-poor" students by virtually every measure. This study, Champions of Change, found much evidence that learning in the arts helps develop habits that will support other disciplines, and that it can often reach at-risk students when other disciplines cannot. The arts provide young people with authentic learning experiences that engage their minds, hearts, and bodies. Arts education helps students learn; it can enhance creativity, self-discipline, and the skills and confidence necessary to meet the challenges encountered during their lives.

Great little place with a wonderful staff of volunteers. Spent longer than I expected to because the staff was so interesting and knowledgable.

Very nice, well put together facility. I do think everything should be behind glass. Since everything isn't behind glass it kinda forces the staff to watch your every move to detour thief. I don't blame them because people do steal, but it's not comfortable to the customer. Overall it was a great visit, I loved the museum, great value.
Visited the Funk Center today traveling back home from Cedar Point and the Funk Center did not disappoint! Wonderful exhibits of priceless memories and Mr. Webb and his staff were absolutely fantastic! 5 Stars ..well worth the visit. Please call to make an appointment. This is a must see when you're in Dayton, Ohio.
