The MIM is a seemingly quirky museum that will quickly capture the heart of any visitor—whether you consider yourself a musician/music lover or not. As one of the newest museums in the state, it’s already making (sound) waves with over 6,500 instruments from 200 countries and territories. The majority are optimized with cutting edge A/V technology, which allows you to hear, see and observe the full complexity of the instrument. The performances are just as mind-blowing as the instruments!
Guests are welcome to try out the instruments in the Experience Gallery, or see famous instruments owned by music legends like Elvis Presley, John Lennon and Carlos Santana in the Artist Gallery. MIM has only been open six years, but TripAdvisor already ranks it as one of the 20 best museums in the country and the top attraction in Phoenix.
