It’s not every day that you can see a rare Stradivarius violin. With a ticket to Cremona’s Violin Museum, you can admire a number of these instruments crafted by Antonio Stradivari in the 17th century along with other historic instruments. Learn about the history and production of violins, as well as the techniques used by Cremona’s most famous master luthier to create his legendary instruments, with an audio guide.

Even if you don't make violins but like music, this is just a wonderful tour. Our guide whose father started the school was just delightful. There were only three people on the tour, and we were able to see the bow making school as well as the violin making part, and got to talk with the students there. Very highly recommended!

A real treat!! There is such a difference between seeing ‘how it’s made’ in a museum and actually visiting with real students of the craft, learning/honing their skills as instrument makers and working with such heart and diligence and craftsmanship, in the small quaint rooms of an old palace building ... inspiring at all levels. It’s like stepping back in time ... the students, with their aprons and well-minded tools, working slowly and methodically under the watchful guide of the master violin maker and master bow maker, the smell of the varnish and of the wood shavings as each new instrument takes shape, all in its own time. Thank you so much to Marta who so expertly explained the processes of making a violin and a bow to us in English. The short hour with you at the school was wonderful and very much worth the train trip all the way from/to Lake Garda. Tip ... visit the school first in the morning and then go around the corner to the Museo dei Violini.

It was our good fortune to visit the Academia Cremonsis in May of 2018. Prior to our visit I enjoyed listening to the violin, but after our visit I appreciated all that goes into making that beautiful sound. Our wonderful guide, Massimo Lucchi knows everything about violin and bow making, and has a most charming and interesting way of teaching. There is no question he cannot answer, and his technical knowledge is immense. It was the highlight of our trip (that included La Scala) to northern Italy. Many thanks Massimo, for everything you did for us, including the tee shirts. I'm enclosing a picture of the grandchildren and grandparents wearing them.
