Musical Instrument Museum

Music enthusiasts, welcome to paradise in Phoenix. The Musical Instrument Museum, the largest of its kind in the world, has more than 15,000 different musical instruments from almost 200 different countries! It is a chance to see how rhythms and beats intertwine in every inhabited continent. The contemporary building covers approximately 200,000 square-feet, with two floors of galleries. The ground floor is more of the technical side of instruments while the upper level is more of the gallery of art. Now the exhibits for each country features a flat-screen high-resolution video showing local musicians performing on native instruments. Visitors can listen to the performances through a wireless device with headphones that is activated automatically when an exhibit is being observed. You can easily spend four hours learning about how life is expressed through music at the Musical Instrument Museum.  - Jordan Dietterich of Surfside, Florida
