You can get some idea of it here.
We didn't see the special event of
Women Who Rock. Even so, we
spent five hours pretty much
moving right along.
The highlight was the piano John Lennon used to write "Imagine." It was also the 33rd anniversary of his death so there was some emotion there. I pretty much grew up with the Beatles and still love their music, mostly the older stuff.
Galleries include The Artist Gallery (Lennon, Denver, Elvis, Roy Orbison and so many others), Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, South Asia, East Asia, Southeast Asia, Latin America, Europe, North America and the Mechanical Music Gallery.
Here's my husband in front of an automated band. The drums and other things move and play.
I had no idea bagpipes came from so many countries. "A World of Bagpipes."
I took around 170 photos so you, readers, will be seeing many more as the weeks go on.

Describe a museum that really stands out in your mind.
Did you play an instrument in school? Do you still play?
What is one of your favorite songs?
