INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Rhythm! Discovery Center, a creative vision of the Percussive Arts Society, will celebrate its Grand Opening this November in Indianapolis. Located in the heart of downtown, Indianapolis’ newest attraction will offer a creative and engaging experience to visitors by interpreting the role of rhythm and percussion in music and culture through dynamic educational experiences. Interactive exhibits, participatory opportunities, and a hands-on area will illustrate rhythm, its role in society, and its connections to daily life.

Keystone constructed this 15,000 square-foot facility which will house three feature galleries, a hands-on area that allows visitors to play a variety of drums and percussion instruments, and a retail store. Gallery themes will explore the expansive history and cultural connections of rhythm and percussion, demonstrate how musical acoustics work through science, and showcase rare percussion instruments and artifacts from around the world.

Rhythm! Discovery Center is an exciting new extension of the Percussive Arts Society that evolved from the Percussive Arts Museum that was previously located in Lawton, Oklahoma. Now with more exhibit space and convenient pedestrian access, Rhythm! Discovery Center will build on the many successes the museum experienced and will maintain the most extensive and unique display of rare percussion instruments and artifacts from around the world.
