“experience the history of musical instruments”
MIM offers a shared experience of the history of musical instruments throughout the world. The 200,000 square-foot space is bright and open, providing guests with a warm and comfortable environment. Guests are introduced to MIM through the Orientation Gallery on the first floor showcasing the artistry, diversity, and movement of musical instruments from around the world. On the second floor, guests can venture into different regions of the world to discover the complete orchestra of a Chinese opera, a big-band jazz ensemble, or all the instruments of a mariachi band, among others. The collection includes instruments from around two hundred countries and territories in the world. Some larger countries such as India, China, Russia, the United States, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and others have multiple displays with subsections for different types of ethnic, folk, and tribal music. The instruments have both historic and artistic merit and many are more than fifty years old. MIM’s goal is to acquire instruments that have been used for folk and tribal occasions wherever possible.
