This is the same place as the National Music Museum they changed their name a couple of years ago to more reflect their national and international collection. This is a great place and good for families and school trips.

This is the same collection as the National Music Museum. There are collections of European, settled American, guitars, guitar shops, and world music instruments to view.

This is a one-of-a kind stop. The last time I was there with a small tour group, we were allowed to play some of the gongs and instruments in an African setting.

The "Shrine" is the common name of the National Music Museum and both are located in the same building. This world-class collection of rare and uncommon instruments ranks among the top collections in the world, where experts study and play them regularly. Schedule a few hours for a visit and you will be richly rewarded in many ways.

If you like world music, they have a room dedicated to music from Africa, Malyasia, China, and elsewhere. Across the hall from that they have a collection of guitars... More

We have not visited this since it was relocated in the Dome so it'sbeen quite a long time ago. It was nice at the time and I'm sure it just keeps getting more additions and gets better.
