By The Time I Get To Phoenix - Musical Instrument Museum

This is one great museum for music lovers of all kinds!

I am passionate about music, so when I recently visited my friend Jeff in Phoenix, Arizona, he suggested we go to the Musical Instrument Museum. Wow!!!! This is one of the cooler museums youíll ever tour, and the largest of its kind in the world. From musical instruments around the globe (more than 6,500 of them) to booths showcasing some of history's most famous musical artists to mechanical musical instruments that will blow your mind, the MIM has something for everyone. Itís interactive booths where you can view videos and listen to music are the highest of high-tech. Four hours was not nearly enough to cover it all. Warning Ö this post lends itself to a few puns Ö enter at your own risk!

We always mean to visit when we go to the Mayo Clinic which is adjacent to MIM. Your post with photos encourages me to make an effort next time we're there. Thanks Tom!

Not only is it a wonderful museum, but it also offers concerts in a great venue. Among others, we've seen Donovan, John Mayall, Maria Muldaur, Judy Collins there.
