Musical Instrument Museum – Such a modest name for such an elaborate place. The MiM is a collection of instruments from two hundred countries, instruments with stories to tell and integrity to hold. Artist Galleries hold portraits of famous music icons and the tools that have guided them on their way. Special workshops, concerts, and rare musical artifacts are what make the expansive museum renowned by greats such as Carlos Santana and Andy Summers.
