    This place ended up being so much better than I thought it was going to be. Hands on instruments and tons of instruments on display.

    Excellent interactive exhibits. Hands on experience w/ a number of instruments including guitar, keyboards, electronic drums, banjo, harp and laser "Beamz Interactive Music System." Worth the stop!
