After several years of planning and a recent complete remodel of its physical space, the Museum of Making Music (MoMM) will celebrate its grand reopening to the public on Tuesday, June 15th. The re-envisioned Carlsbad-based cultural institution will reveal a vibrant, dynamic, and immersive experience across four new galleries. “In the years since our opening, we’ve seen enormous changes in music, society, technology, and, by extension, in the many industries involved with musical instruments and products,” said Carolyn Grant, executive director of the MoMM. “This new musical landscape, coupled with our growing and shifting audiences, made it clear to us that the time had come to modernize the MoMM with new technologies and innovative storytelling. We’re excited to offer a new look at the people and products that bring music to our world.”
As the only museum of its kind in the world, the new MoMM welcomes visitors from near and far on a unique journey of musical exploration and discovery as told through instruments, artifacts, and multimedia displays featuring stories, photographs, performance clips, and interviews with instrument creators, artists, and industry innovators.
Beginning Tuesday, June 15, The Museum will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Under the direction of state and county health protocols, the MoMM will utilize COVID mitigation strategies and cleaning throughout the museum as well as a ticketed registration system to manage the flow and number of visitors to the new space. Admission to the MoMM is $15; $10 for seniors, students and active military; and free for Museum Members and children age 3 and under.
