  • "Pay What You Wish" Admission

  • Event Details

    The Museum of Making Music is a proud participant in Make Music Day, a free global celebration of music on June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 750 cities in 120 countries.

    Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.

    In partnership with Make Music Day and Make Music Day, San Diego, the Museum of Making Music joins the global Make Music Day celebration by offering “Pay what you wish!” admission and musical activities all day long. There is something for everyone during Make Music Day.  All activities are included with Museum (pay what you wish) admission.

    Live Music
    Join us for live music all day long presented on THREE different stages! In addition to a curated main stage, we will have two “open mic” stages featuring musicians of all ages and experience levels. So bring your instrument and sign up to play!

    Family Fun
    Kids and families are in for a treat with kid-friendly workshops and music making activities throughout the day. From building to jamming we’ll have something fun for whole family!

    Jam-A-Long
    Join fellow musicians for group music making events throughout the day. Grab a djembe and rock out in a drum circle or bring your flute for a jam with the concert band. More details to follow!
