As museums go, this was more fun than I anticipated. It is great to hear an artist's music on wireless headphones as you view a display. Great asset to the Phoenix metro area and great activity for families with children.

Beautiful large museum with 1000s of instruments, Each country has its own display. Walk through and each display has a wall hung tv that turns on automatically and plays through your headphone. See John Lennon's piano and Elvis's guitar. Many others.

I'll be the first answer my own question. I've just read in the "Policies" section of the website that, yes, there are wheel chairs available at no cost on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The closest resort is the JW Marriott, which is a very nice resort and within walking distance. You are also close to Desert Ridge, a shopping center with a variety of restaurants.
