USA, Arizona: Phoenix – State's Capital
But now let's look at a few interesting places. Our first tip is the Music Museum. If music is close to you, you will be in your element. This museum is one of the largest of its kind in the world. His collection includes almost 7,000 musical instruments from almost 200 countries.
In addition, the museum is housed in a modern building, which is home to five permanent galleries, including the Experience Gallery, a gallery where you can try out musical instruments. In addition, the museum regularly organizes various temporary exhibitions, and even live music performances with an auditorium for three hundred spectators.
Another museum that we recommend you include in your tourist search is the famous and renowned Heard Museum. It was founded in 1929 and is dedicated to the art and culture of the Indians of the American Southwest. You will see how skilled they were in dowsing, pottery, making jewelry and textiles. You will also be able to enjoy an exhibition of duck figures. In the culture of the native inhabitants of North America, these small and colorful figures are carved from wood. Children receive them, not as toys, but as an object they should take care of.
The museum has several galleries and outdoor installations where you can see the traditional and contemporary art of the American Indians. Especially outside, you will find a garden full of sculptures and, among other things, a pleasant cafe, where you can order some of the special dishes to accompany current exhibitions.
Other interesting museums undoubtedly include the museum of firefighters, which is somewhat humorously called The Hall of Flame Fire Museum. There are artifacts associated with this dangerous profession dating back to 1725. You will see old fire trucks and quaint fire extinguishers. However, the museum does not focus exclusively on the United States. You will see various objects from Europe or Japan, which will give you a more comprehensive view of what is associated with firefighting and what it entails.
