Several weekends ago, we visited MIM, the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix, AZ with my parents and some of my siblings.


It was fun for the whole family.


You are able to wear headsets that sych with the exhibits, so that you can hear music from all over the world as you look at displays that show different instruments and artifacts.

There are huge rooms for every continent (well except Antarctica, no musical penguins I guess), as well as a large space with different musical genres, from jazz and blues to hip hop and rock.


There were famous musical artists' signed guitars, show costumes, pictures, etc.


But the best room of all was the hands-on room with instruments to play.


We had to peel the boys (and the rest of the family) away from it all.

They had so much fun.

I would most definitely go back, as there was so much to see, hear and do, we couldn't possibly enjoy it all in one outing.


Plus, the boys really rocked those headphones!


  1. Oh that looks so fun! Cate would LOVE it. We'll definitely have to do that next time we visit!

    1. Jenny, I thought of you guys as I was typing this up, thinking Cate would love it. It's a long drive from us, but so worth it. Wish I would have known how great it was to recommend it to you when you were here last summer.
