The Musical Instrument Museum Revisited

The Musical Instrument Museum Revisited

You might know that the MIM is one of my favorite places on earth. (See previous posts about the MIM here, here, and here.) A world-class museum located in Phoenix, it contains an extensive collection of thousands of instruments. So when my brother Bill visited from New Jersey last month, I made sure I took him to the MIM.

Here are some of the things we saw:

Taylor Swift’s piano.

Instruments from Africa, some with exquisite carving (click on any to scroll through enlargements and see my captions):

From Asia:

And the Middle East:

We also saw lots of xylophones, but I used those pictures for a post on April 28, 2016.

We didn’t even get to Europe and North and South America. Oh, well, Bill. You’ll have to visit again so we can see the rest of the museum.

My brother and I are rocking out in the Experience Gallery:
