This is a fabulous place to visit for tourists and residents of Arizona. My husband and I went with our 10 year old. You can spend all day there exploring and watching the videos. If you are looking to just meander around and not really get the full experience then I would bring young children. If you are looking to get the full experience I wouldn’t bring younger children. My family spent 3 hours there and probably could have spent much longer if it was just my husband and I. The Experience Gallery, allowed you to play some of the instruments talked about in the museum. We very much enjoyed the Artist Gallery, where they had videos and memorabilia of artists of every genre. The Mechanical Music Gallery which included a player piano, really reminded me of the innovative thinkers we had many years ago. The gallery that will take you the longest is the Geographical Gallery, which takes you through the instruments of the many countries of the world. This museum is worth every dime and well worth the time!

Family with a 8, 9, and 11 year old. The museum is extremely well done. With kids limited attention span, we started in Africa and Asia, and we probably should have started downstairs in the exhibits of famous musicians. They basically have a small exhibit on almost every country in the world. It is really cool. However, much of it is similar and blends together. We spent about 3 hours there. You could spend 6+ hours there if you wanted to watch all the television clips.

I was impressed how the Museum organized the 10,000 musical pieces throughout the very large museum. The upper level has the Geographic Galleries, staging the various pieces by world regions. It was interesting to see the evolutionon of drums, strings, horns of different types (including animal horns). I now know the difference between lyres and guitars. I also know bagpipes aren't solely from Scotland.

Plan for a whole day at this exhibition - the self guided tour headset is amazing - lets you focus on the sounds of the instruments. I didn’t budget enough time though! We will be back!!

I loved this place... felt like I needed days to take it all in. There's a fun, hands-on section for kids to play guitar, drums and other instruments, but otherwise, it's a lot of walking around and appreciating memorabilia... which is great... if you don't have really small kids along. We saw the women in rock exhibit..so cool!! I haven't been in awhile but they used to allow you to leave and come back the same day as long as you held on to your receipt, which I highly recommend. I would take the kids for an hour or two, drop them off with family/sitter, then come back to look around by yourself... or, grab lunch and come back later.
