As the first global musical instrument museum, the 190,000 SF ground-up project houses more than 12,000 instruments and objects representing musical traditions. The museum’s modern massing and modest mix of simple forms and materials blend with the desert landscape. MIM includes a state-of-the-art, 299-seat theater. Much of the façade was constructed of sandstone imported from India. The lobby/atrium space, known as “El Rio,” is finished in Venetian plaster  and Italian porcelain tile. Sustainable features were integrated, including the use of fly ash in the concrete, 25,000 SF of photovoltaic solar panels on the second-story roof areas, a chemical-free chiller water system and extensive xeriscaping.
