We have been to a few other music museums, but this is one of the best. There is a vast collection of instruments and very well curated with videos on development of Western music from the 17th to 20th centuries that synchronizes with the audio guide. As we were there on Saturday, the museum also had a performance and talk on the cello and pipe instruments.

This is probably the best museum of its kind I've visited. But you could miss what for me were the two outstanding parts: a guitar which belonged to Django and another signed by Berlioz and passed to him from Pagannini. Also, extraordinary to see Stradivarius moulds.

Off the beaten tourist path and not crowded at all, this is a hidden gem. The free audio guide is well done and essential to the experience. It’s an amazing collection of instruments through the centuries - including some of the earliest electronic instruments. If you’re not a musician you’ll enjoy it. If you are, don’t miss it!

I found the temporary exhibition of photography by Robert Doisneau a delight. The works themselves are often stunning (an audition by three identikit singing sisters for example) but the explanations and links are well done, and above all Doisneau comes across as witty, perceptive and fun. You can look down through the viewfinder of his Rolleiflex, and see a picture of him, which is a bit structuralist/surreal. And his comment about using the Rolleiflex is priceless. Something like : ‘it always made you look down, as if your head was hanging in reverence. It wasn’t, but that always came in useful.”

I didn't think I'd find this museum very interesting but using the free audio guide, it was fascinating. You can learn about this history of various type of instruments, or listen to how each one sounds. Really, so much more interesting than I'd expected. They have special audio guides for kids. It was also nice to get away from the crowds at the big sights. Maybe not a must for a first trip to Paris, but worth the metro ride.
