“fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

The highlight of our trip to this city. Looks stunning from the outside & houses a fascinating collection of instruments through the ages. We were given a free audioguide with our tickets; it has text about the exhibits & you can listen or enjoy video as you tour the displays. We had well over 2 1/2 hours here & I'd recommend it to all lovers of historical music. There's also a wonderful display of bells and how they're made.

“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

The museum was ok, but I think there are a lot better museums (like MAS and MOMU) in Antwerp. So if you come for a short visit this is certainly not a must.

“Well maintained and interesting museum showcasing history of music in Flanders.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

Compact exhibition of all things musical pertaining to Flanders, displayed over two floors.
Disappointingly, the 'audio guide' didn't have that much audio content - at least the English language version didn't! However, the English language visual explanations were very adequate.
You won't need much more than an hour here, but still a worthwhile diversion.
Visit if you're exploring the 'old town'.
