The Museum of Musical Instruments (MIM) in Phoenix Arizona is another proof that even in the desert, if they set their mind to it, Americans can do everything. The handsome new building, surrounded by Phoenix mountains, has become a new cultural center, the venue of different musical and educational activities.

In that film the narrator conveys the universal motto of the museum: music is the amplifier of human emotions.
