  • Didn't expect much due to size. Was completely floored by how well the material was well researched and organized. It took me two hours to actually get through Louis Armstrong and barely started Bird. Wasn't able to finish, since I scheduled too little time for it and family was already waiting outside. Recommend scheduling a whole day for Jazz enthusiasts. Small, but totally worth it.
  • Incredibly kind staff! Lots of fun exhibits about a lot of different musical artists. Some interactivity which was really cool. Blue room is beautiful.
