The Museum joins the global Make Music Day celebration by offering “Pay what you wish!” admission and musical activities all day long. There is something for everyone during make music day:

Perform Live
Everyone aged 3 to 103 is invited to bring an instrument and play on one of the performance stages set up in the museum galleries. Please contact Bill at (760) 304-5819 or to reserve your time slot. Performances in several locations will be on the hour from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Mini Lessons

Presented in partnership with Recreational Music Center, small group lessons on guitar, ukulele and more will be offered throughout the galleries. Learn a few chords with your friends and family and fellow Museum guests. Instruments are provided.

The Infinity Chamber (one day pop-up exhibit!)
Explore a space where time and sound become entangled to create unexpected forms. The sounds within are entirely your own - sing, whisper, and scream to discover the secrets of the Infinity Chamber.

Happy Hour

Have to work during the day? Don’t worry because we are extending our normal hours for Make Music Day and turning it into a happy hour! From 5 p.m.-7 p.m. check out the museum exhibits, enjoy a beverage from the cash bar and rock out to live music.

All Make Music Day activities are included with Museum (pay what you wish) admission.

Make Music is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21, 2016. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 700 cities in 120 countries.
