Visited on a Saturday morning when a percussion group from a middle school in Kentucky was featured in the performance space. Enjoyed the permanent exhibits, but loved the middle grades performance.

Very cool and well organized museum for all ages. Exhibits intertwine with hands on percussion instruments. It can get noisy when everyone is playing but that is part of the fun! Something different to do during a visit to Indy. Located inside the mall it...More

If you love drums and music this is a Must See attraction. How many places do you take the kids and you have to say "don't touch" or "shhhh"? Not here. You and the kids can spend hours playing hundreds of different percussion instruments and...More

Down below street level, below the Arts Garden that bridges over a downtown intersection, is the Rythm Discovery Center. Never suspected it was there until a friend suggested I visit. Wow! As a music lover, this is a really great, unique experience. Very interesting historic...More

As a percussionist, I've been looking forward to visiting this place for years. Finally got the chance to take my kids there this week. They loved the hands-on aspect...especially the sound-proof rooms letting them pound away. Myself, as a trained percussionist, was let down by...More
