The Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) is the only museum in the world devoted to global musical instruments. MIM opened its doors to the public on April 24, 2010, and instantly became recognized as a fun, family-friendly, worldwide tourist destination. It includes exhibits for every country in the world, along with exhibits that offer an insider’s view of how some instruments are made, how they are played, or the varied contexts in which they are used.
All guests are invited to play instruments from around the world in the Experience Gallery. Instruments from music icons such as John Lennon, Taylor Swift, Elvis Presley, Carlos Santana, and many more in MIM’s Artist Gallery.
MIM’s collection includes more than 15,000 musical instruments and artifacts, approximately six thousand of which are displayed at a time. Most MIM exhibits are enhanced by state-of-the-art audio and video technologies that bring to life the sounds and sights of the instruments on display.
