A traveling exhibition about the sounds and songs of life

Wild Music: Sounds & Songs of Life

The Exhibition

Wild Music EntranceWhales compose, bullfrogs chorus, songbirds greet the dawn, and people everywhere sing and dance. What do we all have in common? Long before the advent of iTunes, the musical instinct ran deep. Wild Music explores evidence for the biological origins of music through highly interactive exhibits and exceptional sound experiences, and -- in the process -- expands our understandings of what makes music. With its multicultural content, careful attention to accessibility, and rich menu of public programs and performances, Wild Music offers broad appeal for diverse, intergenerational audiences.

The 4,000-square-foot exhibition is a production of the Science Museum of Minnesota, the Association of Science-Technology Centers, and the University of North Carolina at Greensboro School of Music, with major support from the National Science Foundation. Additional support was provided by Harman International, Inc. and the NEC Foundation of America.

Wild Music was built using ecologically green materials.

Wild Music opened in Saint Paul in March, 2007 and begins its tour in the summer. For the itinerary or to book the exhibition, please visit SMM Traveling Exhibits external link icon.
