Mission Statement:

The Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) enriches the world by collecting, preserving, and making accessible a wide variety of musical instruments and performance videos from every country in the world.  

Musical Instrument Museum offers guests a welcoming and fun experience, incomparable interactive technology, dynamic programming, and exceptional musical performances.  

Musical Instrument Museum also fosters appreciation of diverse cultures around the globe by showing that we all innovate, adapt, and learn from each other to create music the language of the soul.


The Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) was founded by Robert J. Ulrich, former CEO and chairman emeritus of Target Corporation.

An avid collector of African art and a world museum enthusiast, Ulrich and his friend Marc Felix originated the idea for Musical Instrument Museum after a visit to the Musical Instruments Museum in Brussels, Belgium.

Their unique vision was to create a museum and collection that afford equal representation to the musical instruments and music of every country in the world.

Using state of the art audiovisual technology to show musical instruments being played in their original cultural context and delivering the sound of these instruments through high-quality headphones, Musical Instrument Museum provides a one of a kind experience to museum guests.
