What if visiting a museum was as exciting as going to a music festival? That sense of excitement, discovering new artists, hearing new sounds and celebrating with friends, this is the approach NMC is taking to developing the exhibitions for our new building. Learn More


NMC is preparing to move into a new 160,000 square foot facility in Calgary's East Village. In 2015, we are bringing our musicians and instruments right to your classroom with new in-school programs!

Our Collection

There are over 2,000 artifacts in NMC’s collection, which represent the history of music technology and tell the story of music in Canada.

Support NMC

There is an urgent need to preserve and celebrate our music history. If we don’t share these stories, who will?
