Toe tapping tunes played on fiddle, mandolin and guitar are only possible through wood from trees. Experience the acoustics of Discovery Center’s lobby as you hear musicians playing fine instruments made from trees. Learn about the different woods used to make the instruments including trees native to Missouri and more rare woods from around the U.S. and overseas. Many of the world’s finest tonewoods are endangered or threatened due to overharvest and development, most used for things besides musical instruments.
