This is a hidden gem of North Carolina (and really the United States). This is a must-visit for tuba or low brass musicians. Vincent (who conducts each tour) was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the tuba and the changes the tuba has undergone, including the differences by country, manufacturer, etc.
Absolutely breathtaking to see so many tubas in one place, make sure you schedule a tour and check this place out! The pictures do not do it justice.

Absolutely fascinating! Vince is incredibly passionate and knows more about tubas than probably anyone else on earth. We aren't even tuba players, and we loved the tour. Easily one of the best museum experiences we've ever had, at one of the most unique establishments we've ever seen. Absolutely 10/10 recommend.

Worth a visit. Vincent spent 1.5 hours with us on a Saturday, which was far longer than I expected, but would have liked some time just to browse (as well as take photos/video). Clearly something he has invested a portion of his life into. Better organized than I expected. Hope it can continue and maybe even become nicer (glad it survived the pandemic). Great unique place in Durham.
