National Jazz Museum in Harlem

 
Founded in 1997 by jazz saxophonist Leonard Garment, the National Jazz Museum in Harlem strives to preserve and promote jazz by inspiring and celebrating the genre in the community and beyond. The museum features live performances, exhibits, educational workshops, and programs to help groups find an appreciation for the art of jazz. Past events at the museum include jazz performances by Benny Carter, Solomon Hicks, and many others. Exhibits showcase important figures in the jazz world, moments in jazz history, and more. Guided visits allow groups to explore jazz through activities such as discussing music, reading poetry, learning to “scat,” and watching historic videos.
