  • This is a small museum. Percussion history is fairly well represented. We love being able to play and experiment with various drums and percussion instruments! Some things weren't in best working order but we still had a great time. Would love to go when there is a drum circle going on!
  • Visited Indy so many times and didn't realize this place existed. I started drumming a couple of years ago, but whether a beginner, expert or someone who never played before in their life, this place is a great way to spend an hour or two. Pretty much anything you can hit to make a sound (including giant cymbals, wood blocks and more) as well as classic drum kits (and even one made out of Lego) are here. And much of it you can have a.go on!
