What: The Musical Instrument Museum, MIM, offers a shared experience of the history of musical instruments throughout the world. The 200,000 square-foot space is bright and open, with more than 6,500 instruments on display from around the world. Photographers can venture into different regions of the world to discover and photograph the complete orchestra of a Chinese opera, a big-band jazz ensemble, or all the instruments of a mariachi band, among others. The collection includes instruments from around two hundred countries and territories in the world. Some larger countries such as India, China, Russia, the United States, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and others have multiple displays with subsections for different types of ethnic, folk, and tribal music. The instruments have both historic and artistic merit.
