Discover, learn, listen, and create! Search for musically inspired artifacts and artworks while exploring the museum galleries with a scavenger hunt specifically designed for Museum Day’s 2019 theme: Smithsonian Year of Music. Learn about and listen to vintage instruments during several gilded age music room demonstrations. After the scavenger hunt and music demonstrations, come to the Mezzanine level overlooking the former Alcazar Hotel’s historic pool area to create your own music-themed craft. You’ll also want to explore our museum store where we have exciting musically inspired items.
