Musical Instruments

for

Children's Museums and Science Museums

These Unique and engaging musical instruments are perfectly suited for museums of all types. I've been making most of them for over 20 years now and they have well been tested by time and continual use.

Many of these musical instruments you will also find on my "Playground" page, as they work well for both environments. Those instruments will have links to the playground page for options and pricing. Those musical instruments more especially suited for museums will have descriptions and pricing here.

Happy exploring!
