Family Day at Studio Bell is bringing you the Dueling Piano Kings, a highly interactive, all-request piano show, and all kinds of family fun, plus FREE admission!

Visitors can explore vibration, volume, and how we put energy into instruments through a hands-on Instrument Petting Zoo. Catch a Kimball Theatre Organ demo, and dive into The Eh! Game, a self-guided trivia exercise where you’ll work as a team with your family to answer a variety of questions and riddles about Canada’s music story.

While admission is free on Family Day, paid tours will be offered to families who want to amp up their experience. Go “behind-the-glass” of the National Music Centre’s exhibitions, dive deeper into specific artifacts, and see the collection come to life with a musically trained tour guide. Behind-the-Glass Tours are $10 for adults, $7 for students/seniors, $5 for youth (4-12), and free for NMC Members and kids 3 and under. Book yours onsite at Studio Bell’s box office.
