Milwaukee Museum Exhibit Teaches Kids About The Electric Guitar
Children can learn about the electric guitar at a special exhibit featured at a museum in Milwaukee.
I remember being a kid and really listening to Rock music for the first time. I immediately fell in love with it. Especially, the electric guitar. I tried learning how to play but unfortunately, I didn't have the patience or the skill. Instead, I used my passion to discover the greats like Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page, and many more.
I wish there were things like the internet and YouTube back then. Though, I probably would've never gotten anything done. If your child is interested in the guitar and you want to get them off their device and out of the house, I've got somewhere you should take them.
There's a great museum in Milwaukee called Discovery World. It's located right on the lakefront. You can actually look out the windows and see the Summerfest grounds. It's a fun interactive place for kids. There are many interesting displays including an aquarium. For more info, HERE.
The section that I really enjoyed was "Les Paul's House of Sound." My nephew has been playing guitar for a couple of years now and I thought it would give him a nice insight on the instrument. I was right. He had a blast.
If you're not familiar with Les Paul, from Les-Paul.com,
"Lester William Polsfuss best known as Les Paul, the inventor of the solid-body electric guitar, was born in 1915 in Waukesha, Wisconsin, a small city 20 miles west of Milwaukee."
Here are some pictures of our visit...
