The Musical Instrument Museum was our destination Friday morning. We have been there once before and you can read about it here. The museum is huge and we didn't have the time or energy to explore all the galleries on that visit. Two areas we missed were the American and Arizona exhibits. This time we spent a lot of time there, as well as the European section.
We saw lots of guitars and other stringed instruments.
This is a keyed guitar.
Each museum visitor is given headphones. You stand in front of a screen and hear the music being performed--Bluetooth I imagine.
We saw all kinds of bagpipes.
We had a great lunch in the Allegro Café. Notice we all had sweet potato fries with our sandwich. You can see part of the beautiful grounds through the windows.
I wasn't aware of the fact Alice Cooper got his start in Arizona.
One section looked at the Blues and the fact that many early Blues artists used home-made instruments. Here we see a jug, an ice bucket guitar and a cigar box guitar.
