Jeff Dowler -I thoroughly enjoyed the video of the Music Museum. I wonder if my daughter ever went there when she was living in San Diego. I know she would enjoy it too, as she was a Music Major in College and won numerous Band Camp awards and medals. Recently, I watched a documentary of Paul McCarthy showing some very old pianos and guitars and he played many of them too. There is something so special about a musician. I could really enjoy this museum and listening to one or more of their concerts.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful exhibit on video.

Jeff,  Like Patricia Feager - I enjoyed the video. Music does create and awaken emotions within me.  It can lift me up ... or ... you know  - I like happy upbeat music ... like humor, it is good for the soul.

Thanks for stopping by Patricia Feager  - this museum really IS lots of fun. There is so much there and it's easy to spend a couple of hours with the interactive exhibit and looking at the history of music. The collection of different instruments is pretty awesome. And the concerts for the price are pretty impressive although the venue is so so.

Thanks Kathleen Daniels  - it's  pretty cool place and we have been to multiple events, and have taken out of town family, too. I get what you are saying about music - I have my passions, and other music that I don't care for.
