After you pass through the museum’s Orientation Gallery on the first floor (which showcases the movement of instruments around the world), guests can venture into: 1)  Geographical Galleries – exhibits are broken into territories, namely Africa and the Middle East, Asia and Oceania, Europe, Latin America and the U.S./Canada 2) Mechanical Music Galleries – showcases a range of instruments that play themselves. 3) Artist Galleries – highlight iconic singers and musicians including John Lennon and Taylor Swift.

Some of the best memories you can make at the MIM, however, involve the museum’s Experience Galleries. Long gone are those annoying “do not touch” signs – the museum encourages you to “bang a gong, strum a Burmese harp, and play unique instruments from all corners of the world”.
