My toddler loved it. We stayed at the Embassy Suites next door, so walked over and spent an hour before closing time one day.

An outstanding place for people of all ages. You see the history of percussion development from many cultures; see exhibits featuring the instruments of famous percussionists; and then have the fun of playing with many of the museum's vast collection of percussion.

Visited on a Saturday morning when a percussion group from a middle school in Kentucky was featured in the performance space. Enjoyed the permanent exhibits, but loved the middle grades performance.
