The Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) will celebrate the similarities and differences of the world's cultures as expressed through music —
a language common to us all. Whether we are Inuit or Chokwe, Celt or Han, these instruments help sound out who we are as a culture and as individuals.
With musical instruments from every country in the world, MIM will pay homage to the history and diversity of instruments and introduce museum guests to their varied and unique sounds. MIM will be an engaging, entertaining and informative experience, in which the uninitiated and the knowledgeable, the young and the old will feel welcome.
Museum guests will gain an appreciation for both the musical similarities and unique differences among divergent cultures, countries, and ethnicities through state-of-the-art exhibits. MIM is currently under construction and will open to the public in the Spring of 2010.
