American Banjo Museum reviews
Fun history and some neat banjos. Their traveling exhibits were fun. I wish they had more ways to hear and see famous performances listen to examples etc. There were a few QR codes but not every one has a phone QR code reader or knows how to use one.
Amazing collection in a well laid out museum. The staff is kind and friendly. Also, if you are lucky, live music by some of the most talented players in the world!
