an indoor 1912 River City Streetscape, a replica of the Warner Bros. movie set for The Music Man. Enjoy a treat from the ice cream parlor, shop for unique music themed gifts in Mrs. Paroo's Gift Shop, and reminisce by touring the shops and storefront displays. In addition, The

Music Man Square is a delightful, unique setting for meetings, dinners, receptions and many other special occasions.

  • The museum and streetscape was really interesting to us. We have seen the movie several times and been a part of the pit Orchestra for the musical. We enjoyed the many instruments on display...  more »
  • I'm a Music Man geek so I loved it! Meredith Willson's boyhood home was closed for repairs when we went but it's beautiful on the outside. The ladies that work there were very nice, it was very clean, and there was a lot to see. It was very quiet and didn't seem to get much foot traffic, which is sad because it's really a neat place.
  • Super fantastic! Loved it all. Wish the house was already restored. It was the only thing we missed.
