One of the city’s best kept secrets for children is the Rhythm Discovery Center located under the Artsgarden near Circle Center Mall. If you haven’t been to this percussion museum be sure to go check it out and have a blast with your kids! This is the premier space for kids who love percussion, music and noise. Rhythm has free museum days occasionally, special programs, birthday party packages for kids and more.
When we heard about the Rhythm Discovery Center I was initially skeptical that it would be entertaining to my 3 and 1 year old for more than a few minutes. Needless to say, we spent several hours investigating, touching, and playing with a huge variety of percussion instruments. It was the perfect indoor place to play on this day.Every room is filled with instruments begging to be played, and we made sure to do just that. Our favorite areas of the Discovery Center were the soundproof rooms with full professional drum sets, the 8 foot gong, and the room of hand instruments, that even the youngest child can explore. The Discovery Center allows you to move at your own pace and offers such a variety of experiences that children and adults of all ages are sure to enjoy themselves.
The Rhythm! Discovery Center offers special family programs every Saturday of the month. The following programs are included with the price of regular admission: 1st Saturday – build your own instrument, 2nd Saturday – drum circle, 3rd Saturday – concert, 4th Saturday – rhythm family adventure scavenger hunt.
