Where to find music history museums and music museums in Los Angeles and other parts of Southern Calidfornia.

Museum of Making Music
This musuc museum is actually located about two hours south of Los Angeles, in the seaside city of Carlsbad, but we are including it here because it is one of the best music museums in the world. It was founded in 1998 by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM). It explores the history of the American music products industry from its beginning n the 1890's to the present day. Located at 5790 Armada Drive in Carlsbad, Southern California. For more information call 760-438-5996. Visiting this museum could be combined with visits to two other Carlsbad attractions, LegoLand California and (during the flower blooming season) the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch.

UCLA Musical Instrument Collection
Musical instrument collection of the University of California at Los Angeles, Department of Ethnomusicology.

Miner Museumn of Vintage and Exotic Instruments
This museum dedicated to "vintage, exotic and just plain unusual musical instruments" is actually Gregg Miner's personal collection of instruments. It can only be visited by making a private appointment, and only to serious plucked stringed instrument researchers, collectors, aficionados and musicians.
