As a music lover, I thought I would love this museum, but it's really not worth a trip from anywhere. They tell you you're allowed to play certain pianos and harpsichords, but my husband was scolded for "banging on the keys" of a harpsichord. If the harpsichord is temperamental or requires a certain light touch, maybe a card with instructions... More

Allen gave me a guided tour through the collection. A very nice compendium of musical instruments with links to mid-west history. Modern technology is integrated into the exhibits so guests can hear the sounds of the instruments. Recitals by top notch musicians are given here.
