I recently was lucky enough to see Shaun Colvin at MIM, and it was truly amazing and moving. The acoustics are top notch, the venue beautiful. I can’t wait to visit again, view the exhibits and see another concert!

My kids and I have been to the MIM twice. There is such a huge collection that there is no way you can see it all in one day. I especially like that there is a hands on area as well .
