  • I have visited the museum countless times the latest in January and I hope to visitor again in a week or two. The first time I came as a 9 year old boy I was obsessed with the wonderful instruments...  more »
  • An excellent, conducted tour, through musical instruments and their development over time. A chance to hear them playing and even sing along. Would come along again to hear the Wurlitzer playing...  more »
  • A charming, offbeat little museum. Felt transported back in time by the instrument demos and interesting stories provided by our lovely tour guide. A couple of the instruments were out of commission/undergoing conservation, but there was still plenty to see and hear on the tour -- if I were local, I'd pay another visit to hear the rest. Highly recommend if you have 2 hours to spare.
  • Each location, at the end, has an instrument which you can try out for yourself, super fun! We got to try out a mandolin, a steel slid on a specially tuned guitar, an electric guitar, followed by a room with so many kinds of unique instruments (the funniest being a musical antenna with very strange sounds). You will thoroughly enjoy this place. Come visit if in the area!
