Explore the world’s music and cultures at the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM). MIM takes you on a journey around the world, deep into the heart of human creativity. Rated Phoenix’s #1 attraction by TripAdvisor, MIM displays more than 6,800 musical instruments and objects from every corner of the globe. MIM’s five Geographic Galleries showcase global music and cultures through multimedia that allows you to hear, see, and feel the creative spirit of people as they play their instruments. In the Experience Gallery, bang a gong, strum a Peruvian harp, try your hand at the theremin, and have fun making some music on global instruments similar to ones on display throughout the museum. Visit the Artist Gallery to get a close-up look at instruments and memorabilia from influential artists, such as Elvis Presley®, Ravi Shankar, Carlos Santana, Clara Rockmore, Johnny Cash, Maroon 5, and more. The acoustically superb MIM Music Theater offers an intimate, 300-seat setting to enjoy live performances year-round by renowned and emerging artists from around the world. Plan your visit at MIM.org. And don’t miss Café Allegro! Open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., the award-winning café serves a changing menu of foods prepared from scratch, using fresh, local ingredients.
