SHERMAN JAZZ MUSEUM
is home to artifacts and collections from many of the past’s famous jazz musicians, bringing to life their lives and music. Mr. Collins’ desire is to preserve the impact and contribution that Jazz has made to American culture.
“For those who are jazz fans or trumpet fans, there is not a better museum. This is a world class museum.”
RIVALING THE SMITHSONIAN
in its treasures from the height of the Jazz era, collections include those from Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington, Maynard Ferguson, Doc Severinsen, assorted big bands, and much, much more. Quotes from Buddy Magazine, the Original Texas Music Magazine, tout the museum as a place to put on your “must-visit list, no, ifs, ands or buts,” and commenting on the trumpet collection, “No trumpet enthusiast will want to miss this stuff.”
"The real innovators did their innovating by just being themselves."
The building is NOT wheelchair accessible. PLEASE Watch your step!
