I will be having my first visit to the Musical Instruments Museum in March, attending an MBSI trustees meeting there. For those who may have been are there any phonograph displays there?

Are you referring to the Sanfilippo collection in Illinois?

No. The Musical Instruments Museum is a large museum in Phoenix.

I have been to Sanfilippo's though and it is just fantastic.

There is a mechanical music room. Rather ugly band organ there, and yes a few phonographs. But nothing to write home about. Put aside a whole day for the museum, it is AMAZING.
