“Interesting & interactive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

A small music and theatre museum, close to the Army Museum. Some nice interactive areas for children of all ages. Some of the exhibits on the website are no longer there (folk instruments for example), at least short term, but the staff were excellent and went out of their way to help, including showing me one exhibit from the storeroom, when I enquired.

“A bit of a 'Work in Progress'”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

Not as much to do as they would have you believe. I think we have more musical instruments in our home than this place. And you probably do too. There seems to be a lot of - Under Construction - so this bodes well. If you like kids screaming and banging tunelessly on things, this is for you.

“My favorite place in Stockholm!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

This museum is amazing and so much fun for children. We had to practically tear my 1-year-old grandson away from the instruments, he had so much fun playing them and hearing the different sounds. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to view the upper rooms; we only went to the basement and first floor. We only had 2 hours there before it closed, and we easily could have spent the day there! I plan on going there again with my grandson the next time I visit them in Stockholm! The only bad part was that it was hard to find in the "dark" winter time! The entrance is in an alley, and with the darkness coming so early in the winter, it makes it very difficult to find. But it is definnitely well worth the effort!

“Unique museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

This museum was our fourth stop in Stockholm. Beside the Vasa, this is an interesting place and it could be far more than that to music lovers like us, especially classical. There’s a lot of musical items and instruments from famous authors and writers from all over the world. The instruments have their own categories from different milestones. Very worth the money!
