Plan Your Visit
During your visit to the American Banjo Museum, interpretive exhibits as well as video and performance theaters will take you through the history of the banjo – from the humble African roots through its heyday during the Roaring 20s to its present voice in Bluegrass, folk, and world music. As you stroll through elegant galleries on two floors you will find yourself immersed in the sights and sounds of the largest collection of banjos on public display anywhere in the world.
The American Banjo Museum will re-open its doors to the public beginning on Tuesday, June 2nd, 2020 at 11 am. For the safety of our staff and guests, the following guidelines must be followed:
- If you are experiencing fever, aches, cough or other symptoms please do not enter
- Face masks must be work during your visit. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided
- Please maintain a distance of six feet from other guests and groups (small groups may remain together)
- A maximum of ten visitors will be allowed in the museum at one time
- Existing "hands on" exhibits including the Learning Lounge will be temporarily closed
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation...enjoy your visit!
