Museum of Making Music
The Museum of Making Music, a division of The NAMM Foundation, explores the unique accomplishments and lasting impact of the music products industry through permanent and special exhibitions, concerts and educational programs. Committed to creating a more musical world, the museum directly connects visitors of all ages with hands-on music making.
We envision a world in which the joy of making music is a precious element of daily living for everyone; a world in which every child has a deep desire to learn music and a recognized right to be taught; and in which every adult is a passionate champion and defender of that right.
- Exploring connections between people, instruments and the music we make is an important message that needs to be explored and conveyed.
- The industry story is part of a larger cycle of music making story that is not yet widely understood and merits attention.
- Active music making is an essential element of the full human experience.
- Exposure to musicians and live music is important to one's understanding of music making.
