There are three separate museums at the Grassi. The musical instrument collection is marvelous. In many cases you can actually hear recordings of the instruments. The displays are beautiful and easy to see. The only drawback is that the signage is almost exclusively in German. In addition to many historical instruments, there is a curious selection of 20th century instruments,... More

Good collection, but not as many audio examples as I thought there might be. Not expensive even adding the audio self-guide, a pleasant hour and a half's exploration.

We visited two exhibitions, one of furniture making with some stunning local pieces in it - a couple of beautiful secretaries and lots of very fine chairs. The second was a big show of Jugendstil with lots of local, but also French and Scandinavian equivalents. Although the signage and interpretation of the former was in German only, some of the...

The building itself is very beautiful and the display itself is also amazing. Disappointment No. 1 - Labeling of the exhibits in in German only, perhaps English would help. Dissappointment No. 2 - Very little hands-on experience. Hello, this is about the music and instruments, why not to dedicate a room for little visitors to show them that music instruments... More

Every first Wednesday of the month you can visit this museum for free. But that is not why I like it so much! It harbours three elaborate museums in one, has a vast permanent collection and interesting temporary exhibitions. It is located in a beautiful building, which is very well layed out and they have the best guards in the... More

We enjoyed the progression and presentation of musical instruments presented at this museum. Accompaniment sound recordings added to the experience. The only thing the museum was lacking was a hands-on portion allowing a better sense of the actual instruments.
