Musical Instrument Museum

A welcome addition to Phoenix’s cultural landscape, the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) opened April 24, 2010, and features an expansive collection of instruments from around the world. Guests can explore and experience the rich diversity of the world’s music in the 200,000-square-foot building, which includes two floors of galleries, the Music Theater, a garden courtyard, the Allegro Cafe and the Museum Store. With 5,000 instruments and objects on display, MIM is organized into five Geographical Galleries that each focus on a distinct global region.

The galleries employ advanced wireless technology and high-resolution video screens, enabling museum guests to see instruments, hear their sounds and observe them being played in their original settings—performances that are often as spectacular as the instruments. One of the museum’s most popular areas is the Artist Gallery which highlights iconic instruments from celebrities like Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Taylor Swift, Carlos Santana and many others! Another hotspot is the Experience Gallery, where guests will find guitars to strum, rattles to shake, gongs to bang, and other intriguing instruments that can be handled and played.
