The National Music Museum is set to host a Family Fun Day event featuring crafts for the kids and kids-at-heart, refreshments, and a live musical performance from Phil Baker on Saturday, July 27th. Admission is free.

Kids and adults will be inspired by musical crafts, activities, displays, and demonstrations held in the museum and on the lawn. The event will last from 1:00pm to 4:00pm.

Children’s performer Phil Baker will entertain families with a live concert on the NMM’s north lawn beginning at 2:30 p.m., with refreshments and games. Baker has been a South Dakota Arts Council Touring Artist for more than 35 years, as well as performing 4,500 live shows in 13 countries. He has entertained at events such as the White House Easter Egg Roll and has shared the stage with over 120 national acts such as Barney, the big purple dinosaur! Guests are encouraged to bring their own lawn chair. In case of inclement weather, the concert will be moved indoors.

Guests can also visit the special exhibition, 'High Strung: Five Centuries of Stringed Keyboard Instruments' showcasing some of the NMM's historic keyboard instruments, tracing their development and history from the Renaissance to Today.

Come join us and have a blast!
