The Museum of Making Music

If you are a music enthusiast, you will probably enjoy visiting the Museum of Making Music at 5790 Armada Drive Off Palomar Airport Road close to the 5, in Carlsbad.

We were there last night for the annual meeting of the Carlsbad Friends of the Arts (we are members). There was a wine and cheese reception afterwards in the museum, followed by a jazz concert.

This is a great place to visit if you have any interest in music. There are mutiple rooms that portray the history of music, with many instruments, some dating back a couple of hundred years, including some wonderful harp guitars which are making quite a come back. There are lots of opportunities to listen to different music and the sounds of many of these instruments, plus a well-stocked museum store. Definitely worth a visit.
The Museum also offers concerts periodically:
  • Last night was a jazz duet (piano and acoustic guitar)
  • Harp Guitar Exhibition Opening and Concert on February 3 at 7 PM
  • Blues concert ("Shades of Blues") on February 24 at 1 PM
  • Sure-to-please harp guitar concert by John Doan, a master of the rate 20-string guitar, on March 24 at 7 PM.

Tickets typically range from $15 - $20 with a discount for Museum members.
