Wisconsin is home to this very unique museum and it is no surprise.

Wisconsin Is A Unique State

If you take an individual look at each of the fifty states in the United States, of course, they are each going to have their own unique characteristics. One particular state stands out in my mind and that is Wisconsin. They definitely march to the beat of a different drummer. It is not a bad thing. I appreciate the fact that the residents are not afraid to be themselves.

Wisconsin's Favorite Type Of Music

If I had to name the favorite music of the residents of Wisconsin, I would have to say it is definitely Polka. It is the ultimate beer drinking music and our neighbors to the north love their beer. They even play "Roll Out The Barrel" at Green Bay Packers games. That combines three of their favorites Packers, beer, and polka music.

The Official Instrument Of Polka Music

If I had to name the official instrument of polka music, I would have to answer the accordion. Without it, I do not think a song could even be considered a polka. That would be like "Don't Fear The Reaper" without the cowbell.

When there is an interesting and popular person, place, or thing, it is a good idea to have a museum for it so fans can learn more about the history. Who doesn't love themselves a little bit of accordion music? It just makes sense that there is an accordion museum for people to visit. Plus, there is no surprise that it is located in Wisconsin. It could not have a better home.
