The Music Box Village is a one-of-a-kind, artist-built sculpture garden – not a playground. While we welcome exploration and play, children must be supervised at all times due to the delicate nature of our instruments. Entry is at your own risk.

Friendly leashed dogs are welcome in the Village during Public Hours. Please clean up after your pets for the comfort and safety of all our guests.

We offer private event rentals! Tell us about your event here.
