Pretty small museum and at a $12 admission not really worth it. My son who is a musician liked it the most

This is interesting and worth a stop however it is much smaller than I'd imagine. I figured this place would be at least a couple hours to visit but honestly you could be done in here in 20 minutes or less.

We love this place, especially my 1 1/2 year old son. It would be better if it was bigger though and had more different types of instruments.

Brought my children and they loved being able to play the instruments. The flow and set-up of the center and the prices of souvenirs were great as well.

Have you ever wanted to play drums? Then here's the place for you! You can play in a soundproof room, so no matter how bad you are, no one will ever know! It's not easy to find it, so remember to look for Panera Bread,...More

We took our 3 teenage boys here one Sunday afternoon. We practically had the place to ourselves. There are hundreds of musical instruments to play. But my favorite part was the historical pieces from famous musicians (like Rush) and other cultures. I practically had to...More
