About NMM Goes Electric!

Does exploring historical musical instruments make you feel energized and recharged? Then we have just the exhibit for you! Set to open during the University’s annual “Dakota Days” celebrations, the NMM will feature its first temporary exhibit, “NMM Goes Electric!,” in the Groves Gallery for Special Exhibitions, of the newly constructed Lillibridge Wing.

This all-electric exhibit will be free and open to the public on Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays from 10 AM to 2 PM between October 1 and December 13.

This program is free of cost for NMM Members!
