Artist Gallery

Celebrate music’s most influential artists.

In every time and place, there are musicians whose art deeply touches the lives of many. MIM’s Artist Gallery highlights these personalities with ever-changing exhibits that span sound, style, and era. 
Through generous partnerships, MIM features historic instruments owned, played, and loved by the musicians who have created a shared soundtrack to our lives for generations.

Experience Gallery

Celebrate the joy of music making.

The Experience Gallery is a place to explore self-made musical sounds—and more importantly, a place to let loose and have fun. Find and celebrate your inner musician while playing instruments such as a Javanese gamelan, a West African djembe, a Peruvian harp, a theremin, and more. The hands-on space is fun for families and guests of all ages.

Mechanical Music Gallery

Explore instruments that “play themselves.”

The period between the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries is known as the Golden Age of Mechanical Music. During this time, there was a surge in the creation of self-playing instruments in Europe and the Americas.
In the Mechanical Music Gallery, guests can see a range of instruments from this era that use technologies such as punched cards and discs, paper rolls, pinned cylinders, and electromagnets.

Conservation Lab

Get an up-close look at musical conservation.

Through a large viewing window, guests can see the process of conservation, from cleaning and examining instruments to restoration, repair, and documentation. Conservation work includes careful testing and documentation of various methods for stabilizing, preserving, and restoring objects made of a wide variety of materials, including wood, metal, bone, hide, and plastic.
