our mission

Preserving the Past,
Celebrating the Present

The mission of National Saxophone Museum is to display a unique collection of rare and historically significant saxophones to the public in St. Louis and to preserve and study the history and current progress of the saxophone. Education is the cornerstone of our mission and we aim to expand upon it in the future by creating music outreach programs for the St. Louis areas and by inviting innovative musicians to demonstrate their work and run workshops with the museum.
