The Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) in Phoenix

by Jorge Sanchez - 2 years, 8 months ago

This is a wonderful museum, probably unique of its kind, devoted to all the instruments of the world, and indeed, practically all the 193 countries of the United Nations are represented. There are maps and art objets before every country. Especial mention deseve countries such as China, India, and the Silk Road countries. Spain is poorly represented with only the flamenco and a guitar, but some others are much richer in exposition of instruments, like Congo and other African countries.There are videos showing musicians playing and singsing, and a hall where people, mainly children, can play instruments. And I even saw a laboratory and hospital for dammaged musical instruments.In short, it was a very didactic visit. I spent inside about 3 hours.
