2014 Musical Instrument Museum


On November 20th, we went to the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) in north Phoenix.  MIM is a collection of musical instruments from around the world and across the ages.  It is really an incredible place to visit.  There is the Africa room, for example, with dozens of countries and cultures represented through their instruments and music.  In addition to the instruments, the displays all have video-audio presentations of the instruments in use, accompanied by singing and dancing.   More than 200 countries are represented.   Music has been a part of humankind, long before showers came about.
