What a hidden gem! I had no idea a place this great was here. I had a great time going through this museum. It's a crying shame that most of their inventory is hidden in the basement due to lack of room. I can't imagine what amazing treasures are hidden down there! There are plans to expand, they just need donations to do it. I doubt I'll live here long enough to see that happen, but I absolutely enjoyed what I saw!

We went here because of the great reviews and the museum is worthy of all of them. It is truly unique; musical instruments of all types from ancient to modern are displayed in several well-organized galleries. As was mentioned by the previous reviewer, the walk-around audio/visual guides are a must; unless you are a specialist in musical instruments the guide will make your visit far more informative. We went through every gallery and played all the audio material and were there for over 3 hours. If you have ever played an instrument or simply enjoy listening to music you will be glad you stopped here and budgeted enough time to do it right.

The National Music Museum is truly amazing. I live in South Dakota and had no idea this museum offered so much. Definitely use the offered multi-media devices. Not only can you see and read about the multitude of different instruments, but you can listen to music played on the instruments or watch videos of them being played. I have two children, 7 and 11, and they loved it because it was so interactive. Two hours was not enough time for us. We'll definitely be going back.
