American Jazz Museum


Amidst a swirl of neon and curving interactive exhibits on American jazz greats Charlie Parker, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, and Ella Fitzgerald, a singing tour guide croons to kids to gather 'round. Visitors can sit at a mixing board and put in levels of reverb, or create a rhythm accompaniment for bebop, basic groove, and more. A museum exhibit, The Blue Room Club, doubles as a smoke-free jazz club on weekends. The museum adjoins the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.
