This is a very interesting museum, however it focuses more on the history of musical instruments and does not have very much on musicians (other than saying who owns particular instruments). Adults admission is $10. Bathrooms did not seem large enough to accomodate accessibility issues. Accessiblity a possible issue on first floor among displays and not sure if an elevator is availble to the second floor.

The music museum was amazing. There were so many interesting old instruments to see and great instruments from around the world. We went last summer and any time our travels take us back that way, we're stopping here!

Outstanding collection of historical instruments (I think it's the largest in the U.S.). Great information and contextual displays, free audio tour resources (important for a music museum, eh?). A beautiful museum and a Must-See for all who are interested in acoustic or electric music (classical, jazz, military, blues especially) or instrument making.
