Rising from the desert terrain of North Phoenix, the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) is a significant addition to the worldwide community of museums devoted to music. MIM's collection is truly global in scope, with 15,000 instruments and artifacts from every country in the world. Each exhibit includes high quality audio/video that allows guests to see and hear the instruments being played in the cultures where they originate. The comfortable MIM Music Theater is the best place in the Valley to hear concerts by world-renowned artists from all around the globe. Other popular MIM attractions are the museum's Artist Gallery, which features iconic instruments from celebrities like John Lennon and the Experience gallery where visitors can try their hand playing instruments from around the world.
