Music Musica Returns to the Miami Science Museum


Those of you who missed the Music Musica Exhibit at the Miami Science Museum

in early December will get another chance this week. The exhibit

returns to give museum-goers a chance to learn about the impact of

Latinos throughout the history of American popular music, and also to

play with any of 33 different interactive pieces.

Music Musica is really a combination of two different exhibits.

"American Sabor: Latinos in US Popular Music" displays historical

accounts of different Latin artists who impacted the musical landscape

over the years via imagery and memorabilia.  Featured artists include

the venerable Queen of Salsa Celia Cruz, late heartthrob (and a rare bright spot in Lou Diamond Phillips' mostly bleak career) Ritchie Valens, and of course, Mexican guitar god Carlos Santana

Meanwhile, "Access All Areas" allows adults and children alike to enjoy

interactive exhibits testing one's ability to sing in tune, keep a

beat, mix tracks, play a never-ending scale, and even "see" music in

visual terms.

The Music Musica Exhibit will be open to the

public from 10am to 6:00pm this Monday, February 2nd through Friday,

February 6th at the Miami Science Museum (located at 3280 S. Miami Ave.

in Coconut Grove, FL 33129).  Tickets

run $18 for adults, $16 for seniors and students with ID, children $13

and children under 3 are free. Miami-Dade county residents receive 15%

off ticket prices.
