THE NEW NMM
WORTH THE WAIT

It's been a while, and we've missed you. But hey! - we couldn't be more excited to see you again at the bigger, better, more magically musical NMM. With brand new facilities in the Lillibridge Wing, a bustling schedule of programming for all interests and ages, and 12 completely reimagined exhibition galleries in the historic Carnegie Library, the NMM is excited to spring back to life as the place to explore, enjoy, and preserve the world of musical instruments. 

As of August 2023, the entire first floor of permanent exhibitions is now open!
