We visited this museum after I saw a brochure at the hotel in Tempe. I am now recommending that my friends visit Phoenix just to go to this wonderful place. The exhibits are not like those I have seen elsewhere. It is a delight to be able to see and hear so many diverse forms of music in one location. My son and I had fun with testing the limits of the headsets. You can stand in the same place but face in different directions and hear the sounds of a different exhibit. The display of musical instruments was diverse and there is something for everyone to enjoy.
The museum is so big that it is difficult to take it all in in one visit. We went through the ground floor first and by the time we got upstairs and through the first room, sensory exhaustion started to set in. There are so many countries represented with their native forms of music! I plan to go back, start with countries, and explore each continent more fully. This is the kind of place that one visit is not enough!
