  • Kids of all ages 2-102+ should love this place. All kinds of different drums to bang on with some nice samples of of display sets. Cowbell? Yes, they have that as well. They have a couple rooms with a drum set that you should definitely check out. You can change the acoustics of the room to get a different sound. Unless you are sensitive to loud sounds, check it out. Well worth the Admission and more. Don't miss the Lego drum set and the set made during WWII when raw materials were rationed.
  • Overall pretty interesting place if you like drums, gives you an overall look into the ancient history of percussion and some recent history too. Be prepared to spend about an hour if you're not going to read all of the wall information and about 2 hours if you're going to interact and read and watch absolutely everything there. Big takeaway for me is the 2 soundproof chambers that have drums in them. Super fun but the drawback is that the seats and setup in general is pretty bad for posture. Otherwise cool room!
