Located in the Bricktown Entertainment District in downtown Oklahoma City, the American Banjo Museum is the only museum in the world dedicated to the preservation and promotion of America's only native musical instrument - the banjo.  During your visit, through an array of sights and sounds, you will experience the evolution of the banjo from primitive folk instruments to the opulent Jazz Age creations of the 1920s. You will marvel at the museum's collection of over 300 of the most beautiful and ornately decorated banjos on public display anywhere, each one a work of art.

From Travel Masters - Marsha & Frank Scherer on 09/07/2011

It's a hit! Our group simply loved their time at the Banjo Museum. Walking through the historical displays plus seeing the many old, new and wonderfully-crafted banjos made us all remember how much banjo music played a part in our musical history. The pizza lunch and sing-a-long capped off a very fun-filled visit. We'll be back!


From Joe Ledgerwood/Crossings Community Church on 09/06/2011

It was one of the most interesting and entertaining afternoon's our group has spent anywhere. There is much more to the history of banjo's than you can imagine. The sing-a-long in the Shakey's Pizza replicia took me back to my high school days. The museum was much more entertaining & interesting than I could have ever imagined.
