Join one of our museum guides on an Orientation Tour where you will see, hear, and travel the world through music. Guests can drop in for a 30–45 minute tour and see fascinating instruments on display in three of MIM’s Geographic Galleries: Africa, Asia, and Latin America. This complements the self-guided experience.

Tours are subject to museum guide availability.

Group Tours

Adult Group Tours

Available for groups ranging in size from 10 to 120 our guided tour offers an overview of the world’s music, focusing on cultures in each geographical region of the world. You will also have time to visit the galleries more extensively at your own pace before or after the tour. The self-guided tour allows groups to explore MIM galleries at their own pace. With easier check-in, groups can take time exploring the Geographic, Artist, Mechanical, and Experience Galleries.
