September Is Hospitality Month at the Musical Instrument Museum

Museum Offers Discount & Incentive Program For Hospitality and Tourism Professionals

PHOENIX (Aug. 19, 2011) The Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) in Phoenix invites hospitality professionals to experience the museum’s expansive collection of instruments from around the world with special admission pricing during September.

As a way to thank the hospitality industry for its support, MIM will offer half-off admission to all employees of local hotels, resorts, and tourism associations; meeting and event planners; and tour operators. Valid for the hospitality professional and one guest, the special pricing can be obtained by providing proof of industry employment at the registration desk. Industry professionals who visit MIM will also receive information about the museum’s hospitality incentive program.

With nearly 5,000 instruments and objects from around the world on display, MIM features advanced wireless technology and high-resolution video screens, enabling guests to see instruments, hear their sounds, and observe them being played in their original settings—performances that are often as spectacular as the instruments. The Experience Gallery invites guests to enjoy a unique hands-on encounter with instruments from all over the world while the Artist Gallery features instruments from world-renowned musicians including Elvis Presley, John Lennon, and Carlos Santana. A destination for both tourists and local residents, MIM was recently featured as one of the five must-see things to do in Phoenix by CNN Travel.

The Musical Instrument Museum is located at 4725 E. Mayo Boulevard in Phoenix (corner of Tatum and Mayo Boulevards, just south of Loop 101). Please visit www.theMIM.org or call 480.478.6000 for more information.
