  • I went to this out of sheer curiosity, and I'm so glad that I did! The museum is fun and interesting! As someone with little to no interest in banjos, I walked away with a real appreciation.

  • This banjo museum was really fun to see. I highly recommend walking through it if you have time. With two floors of banjo history this place is the best thing to do if you have a few hours to kill. Once you are done you can go get some food at abuelas. You can also learn to play the banjo and buy one while at the museum.
  • This place is amazing. They have a ton of banjos of all types and eras, and even if it isn't your musical style, the history and how it relates to jazz is really interesting.
