Phoenix’s Musical Instrument Museum

Being the largest museum of its type in the world, Phoenix’s Musical Instrument Museum displays musical instruments from each of the world’s continents, excluding Antartica. Located in northern Phoenix, this museum is rated as the #1 attraction in Phoenix on TripAdvisor. Their collection, made up of over 15,000 items, has everything from a Chinese erhu (二胡) to a Nigerian goge. Opened in April 2010, the museum was founded by Robert J. Ulrich, after a trip to Brussels’ Instrument Museum inspired him to do so. As I am a very musical person, and as I happen to live near Phoenix, I thought it’d be fun to visit and write about the museum for my blog, which is what I am going to be doing in this post!

The museum recently underwent a huge renovation, and it was closed for three years, just re-opening under a year ago. The San Francisco MOMA is now the largest Modern art museum in the States, and it is one of the most famous museums in the city. I hadn’t planned to do an entire post on the museum, but I was so pleasantly surprised by it that I thought it deserved an entire article.
