From Beethoven to Scruggs, people have always been driven to make music—but the creation of instruments had to come first. Musical Instruments brings the evolution of music and instruments to life, incorporating informational panels on the history of music around the world, diverse and innovative instruments for music-making, and activity areas where visitors can build their very own instruments using recycled materials and ordinary household items. Among these unusual instruments, guests will find a PVC pipe “Blue Man Group” styled organ, a washtub bass and other surprises. In Musical Instruments, families are encouraged to escape the summer heat and create a masterpiece of their own.
