The first saxophones created Adolph Sax, and aboriginal instrument created by termites, and a rare live performance of a Crystal Bachet. Every instrument comes alive in the audio tour provided by the museum. You can also buy a CD of the entire museum in English. This is my all time favorite museum. I believe that I've seen examples of instruments in the museum in the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013). See if you can pick it out.
