Musical Instrument Museum
#1 of 30 Museums in Phoenix
After having visited several very small Musical Museums in Europe, what a delight to find a very large, beautiful, modern building housing the Musical Instruments Museum in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
Everyone gets a headset and can hear the tour at their own pace, at their choice of the world's regional music, effectively set up as a bunch of individual music museums within a museum.

I have been to a LOT of museums of all kinds around the U.S. but this certainly kept my attention and I learned something every minute - and wanted to stay past closing, too!

Children’s Museum of Phoenix
#5 of 30 Museums in Phoenix
Just as with too many museums in The Valley of the Sun, we had only attended events and galas at the Children’s Museum, seeing very little of the actual museum.
So if you are a traveling family, and you have been to the Children's Museums in Houston and Chicago, the Phoenix museum is on a smaller scale.

One of only a few American museums with a dedicated Costume/Clothing gallery, the exhibits put on there are amazing and quite comprehensive.
For example there is a permanent installation of a Yayoi Kusama room, the artist whose exhibit is travelling the country to sell outs at all the large museums (Seattle Art Museum and LA County to name a couple).
