  • As someone with no musical background, I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Vince has some wonderful stories and clearly loves talking tubas. His enthusiasm is infectious and I'm so glad he took the time.....  more

  • As the other reviews prior to this one all said, this is a unique and interesting little museum. We really enjoyed it. The owner/curator, Vince Simonette, began by asking us what brought us there.....  more

  • Absolutely fascinating! Vince is incredibly passionate and knows more about tubas than probably anyone else on earth. We aren't even tuba players, and we loved the tour. Easily one of the best museum experiences we've ever had, at one of the most unique establishments we've ever seen. Absolutely 10/10 recommend.
  • This is a hidden gem of North Carolina (and really the United States). This is a must-visit for tuba or low brass musicians. Vincent (who conducts each tour) was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the tuba and the changes the tuba has undergone, including the differences by country, manufacturer, etc. Absolutely breathtaking to see so many tubas in one place, make sure you schedule a tour and check this place out! The pictures do not do it justice.
