Fascinating, little museum. Anyone would love this place because we, as humans, love music and rhythm. However, if you or your kids are involved in band, then this is a must. There's so much...

Overall pretty interesting place if you like drums, gives you an overall look into the ancient history of percussion and some recent history too. Be prepared to spend about an hour if you're not going to read all of the wall information and about 2 hours if you're going to interact and read and watch absolutely everything there. Big takeaway for me is the 2 soundproof chambers that have drums in them. Super fun but the drawback is that the seats and setup in general is pretty bad for posture. Otherwise cool room!
I was very fascinated by the different drums and xylophones.. It's a very large circle with instruments you can play and some just for show. It was an easy self guided tour. I would love to come back the next time I am in Indy.
