National Music Museum: Virtual Tours

The National Music Museum is located on the campus of the University of South Dakota. Its collection of musical instruments from throughout the world is renowned, and some instruments can be found nowhere else. Taking a virtual tour of the museum will take hours if you examine everything that’s offered. Where else can you find a photograph of a trumpet marine, see a drawing of how it was played, and find out why it was such an important instrument in the 15th and 16th centuries? One gallery features instruments from Africa, Asia, and the Pacific Islands. Another is dedicated to the harmonica. What a wonderful resource.
