In April, my daughter, Carly, visited from Brooklyn, New York. She mentioned she’d like to go to the MIM.
The Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix is one of my favorite places in the world. I’ve been there at least five times since in opened in 2010. I’ve written other posts about The MIM.
Here are some of the sights we saw on our visit (click on the smaller pictures to enlarge and reveal captions):
The mariachi exhibit:
A tapa from Oceania, a textile made from the bark of the paper mulberry tree:
Grand piano made for Czar Nicholas I of Russia:
Pretty cool, huh?
What about you? Have you been to MIM, or to another musical instrument museum? (I know there’s another in Paris, and maybe elsewhere.) Share in the comments below.
John and I visited yesterday and enjoyed every exhibit. The videos at each one were amazing as we heard music from early years of jazz to Tibet to rock and roll to marching bands to bell choirs, etc. Loved it!
