Talk about a place to make some noise. Every person that wants to learn about music and sound need to go and visit. The cost is really cheap and can go through the museum in 2 hours.

We were the only ones here during our visit. I cannot imagine this place with lots of kids banging on things. It would be too much! And the sound proof rooms with the drum set was really great but taking turns would be hard if there was a long line. My kids loved the drumming circle and the crashing cymbals and the giant wind chime. It was great fun but we barely lasted two hours. I had planned on an entire afternoon and there was no way it would take up that much time.

Rythm is an interesting hands on museum of percussion instruments. We took our 4 year old,and she had a blast playing on the dozens of different percussion instruments. There were lots of different historical displays which were veryinteresting, but the real fun of Rythm is all the instruments that they allow you to play. Also, it is located downtown next to the mall and restaurants etc, so next timewe will plan a whole day in the area. Try it out!

We had never heard of this gym just 40 mi. from us until it came up on a Groupon special. Our family (5 went) spent about 3 hrs. looking/reading/& playing all kinds of rhythm instruments from all over the world; tiny sticks to an impressive marimba collection to an 8' diameter gong that you could "feel". All of us enjoyed this visit.
