2-Hour Arizona Desert Guided Tour by ATV

123 reviews
Hop on your own ATV on this off-roading adventure in the Sonoran Desert. After a safety briefing and training, gear up and ride across rugged, rocky trails in the scenic Bradshaw Mountains, as well as cross the Agua Fria River. Be on the lookout for coyotes, bobcats, and more, and learn about the region's flora and fauna and Native American history from your guide.

This museum is an immersive experience! Not only are musical instruments highlighted, but so are types of music and musicians that changed/influenced music in their own ways. I loved it! In 3 hours time, I only got through 2/3 of the museum so come early and give yourself enough time to go through all the exhibits!

If you've seen 1000 violins, that's enough. I was ready to leave after 15 minutes, but my friend is a music teacher so we stayed 2 hours.

What a wonderful experience!! The collection of musical instruments from all over the world is almost overwhelming- many actual instruments from almost every known country which videos showing how they are played and used in ceremonies in those countries. We've been there several times for several hours each time, but still haven't seen --- and heard!!-- it all. This is such a gift to music lovers to see and hear instruments which we we've only heard about- or not heard about. It really widens your perspective of music- how important it is around the world in every culture, and how many ways it can be created. We can't wait until we get to go back to Phoenix to visit the MIM again!!

You can hear the music that came from the Interments in the museum and know what they sound like. No Frank Yankavick for Polka. I did enjoy it. Regional Music to types of music and different times periods.

I highly recommend this place! Everything is professionally organized and displayed. And the museum is huge! You can visit several times and still not see everything! I don’t recommend it for younger children unless they are particularly interested and involved in music, although there is a fun hands-on room that kids will enjoy. If music is your thing, don’t miss this one! And plan to spend several hours or even the whole day!
