Museum of Making Music

A couple of Sundays ago, on our way back from San Diego, we stopped in Carlsbad, CA to visit the Museum of Making Music. It's a wonderful little museum, housed in a business park near LegoLand. The description from the website:

The Museum of Making Music is a non-profit organization located in Carlsbad, California that curates public exhibits that relate to the history of American popular music, the manufacture and retail of musical instruments and the history of the music products industry from 1890s to the present day. The museum's galleries consist of more than 450 vintage instruments and artifacts on display, hundreds of audio samples of popular music and an area for visitors to interact with a variety of live, hands-on instruments.
The museum also organizes public events, performances and lectures whose purpose is to entertain, educate and inform audiences of the benefits and heritage of making music.


Larry and I really had a lot of fun ogling all of the historic instruments, interacting with the visual and audio displays and scoping out the giftshop. The best part...they were featuring an amazing exhibit on the history of the ukulele!

This place is a "must-see" if you're traveling south on the Coast!

Have a marvelous weekend everyone. I will be atoning for my sins during the high holiday of Yom Kippur.

Atoning for YOUR sins? That should take all of a half an hour. What are you going to do for the rest of the weekend?

Ukes galore! I LOVE the yawning cat one.

Thanks for telling us about this museum. It's now on my "things to do" list.

P.S. Did you get an Elvis lunchbox to carry your WIPs in?
