Went with my wife while visiting Phoenix. $20 to enter. Was well worth it. The museum is expansive, we didn't allocate enough time to see everything. We will have to make another trip.

This is one of the "do not miss" places to visit in Phoenix / Scottsdale. Take a look at their website to see upcoming performances because the theatre hosts a fantastic array of the best of the best. The design of the museum is spectacular...More

So you think a musical instrument museum would be ho-hum? So did I. WRONG!! Fantastic and oh so cool. Could have stayed all day. So glad my husband opted for this museum over an art museum.

This museum is astonishing but it would take a few days to properly see it all. Be prepared to take a break midday since there is so much information to take in. The staff is very knowledgeable so be sure to ask questions

If you like listening to music and have any genre of music that you like, you will enjoy this museum. Think of it as going to a whole bunch of mini concerts and if you don't like the song you can just move on to the next... More

I'll be the first answer my own question. I've just read in the "Policies" section of the website that, yes, there are wheel chairs available at no cost on a first-come, first-serve basis.
