If you have a knowledge of musical instruments, this museum is a must!! There isn't much in the was of explanations, so it's best if you know what you're looking at. There are excellent recordings of some of the instruments. The collection is crammed into a tiny space, but there are so many examples of musical instruments! The staff (just the one guy!) was very friendly, and even took the time to stop and explain some things to people. They have instruments out that you can try, which was unbelievable. I got to play a Serpent and a Crumhorn. If you don't know what those are, this museum will probably not hold much interest for you. But if you do, go try it out for yourself. Amazing experience!
