History Established in 2009 Since opening its doors in August 1992, the Percussive Arts Museum has become one of the most extensive and important collections of percussion instruments in the world today. The hands-on exhibits and unique displays of rare and beautiful percussion instruments from around the world offer something of interest for everyone. The Percussive Arts Museum is part of the 13,000-square-foot Percussive Arts Society (PAS) international headquarters. Funding for the facility came from matching grants from the McMahon Foundation, with financial assistance and instrument donations provided by PAS members around the world. The Percussive Arts Society moved its administrative offices to Indianapolis, Indiana in April 2007. The move allowed the Percussive Arts Society to have its administrative offices, annual convention and museum in the same city. At PASIC (November 2009,) The Percussive Arts Museum reopened under the new name of Rhythm! Discovery Center.
