  • Thought this would be bigger and show us how they made various instruments. They do, but by using videos. They were informative, but there aren't many stations so if crowded, it takes time. As...

  • A bit out of the way of everyday traffic, and that is good, this museum focuses on the history, evolution and making of the instruments musicians use to created. Most enlightening! Several hands-on....  more

  • Awesome museum! There are a lot of interactive instruments to play and a whole bunch of interesting facts around the whole museum. They have a different exhibits for each time period of music and each genre of instrument, (ex. String instruments). The staff is really friendly and they explain everything really well. A great museum to see while in Carlsbad! 5/5 stars!
  • Amazing place!! From precious instruments to historical video-recordings of famous artists; from exclusive interviews with composers and music producers; and from videos showing the instrument manufacturing process to the unique chance to play with an incredible array of instruments, this museum has it all. Well informed staff that pop up whenever you have a question and a truly gem of a music and books store. And the entrance fee is ridiculously low, too! Can't wait to bring the whole family for a fun filled afternoon here!!
