The World's First Global Musical Instrument Museum
- They're building a new museum in Tempe, Arizona: The World's First Global Musical Instrument Museum.
The collection will include instruments from nearly 200 countries and territories in the world. Some larger countries such as India, China, Russia, the United States, Congo and others will have multiple displays with subsections for different types of ethnic, folk and tribal music. The instruments will have both historic and artistic merit and many will be more than 50 years old. MIM's goal is to acquire instruments that have been used for folk and tribal occasions wherever possible.
