Sit on bench and that's it

Sit on the bench, have a photo and go.

The museum is very small and not really much to see. We were disappointed as it could have been so much more

A tribute to Adolphe Sax
Aug 2019
Dinant is quite proud of their famous citizen. If you have ever wondered about the man who invented the saxophone – this museum is for you. It’s a small museum but it’s definitely worth your time. Since you came to Dinant – you can’t miss the saxophone bridge, but this museum explains more about the man himself. Perhaps more importantly – it’s free!

I only wish there had been more

Small room, hardly bigger than the average classroom, but with a wealth of information about the inventor, and a wonderful exhibit of instruments (he made many). If you push a button, you can hear how they sound.

Very Poor "Museum"
Sep 2019
I am interested in music and jazz in particular so thought this "museum" would be right up my street. I was totally underwhelmed and learned virtually nothing about the saxophone and Adolphe Sax. The only thing I learned was that the saxophone was invented by Mr Sax and he came from Dinart! An opportunity missed by whoever set it up. The only good thing was that it was free. Don't expect to find anything much out by a visit but if you are in Dinart and have 5 minutes to spare you might like it.

Little nook of musical history in the town of Dinant
Jul 2019 • Family
This is a small, free museum in Dinant. It was interesting to learn about the creator of the saxophone and what his contemporaries thought of him.

If you have a musician in the family, this is a neat stop.

Nice little museum!
Jul 2019 • Couples
This museum is said to be the childhood home of Adolphe Sax...there are a few exhibits and a statue in the front of the museum...I believe there is no charge so it's definitely worth a few minutes of your time to explore this place in the beautiful town of Dinant!

Small, informative and free
May 2019 • Family
Dinant has made this special centre entirely devoted to Adolphe Saxthe inventor of the saxophone. It is not a museum, but an interpretive centre that explores his life and work. Here you can experience his technical achievements and inventions. Learn about his successes and his failures. It is also a tribute to the saxophone, originally and entertaining presentation. Well presentated in English as well as in Dutch and French. No staff or entry tickets, explore on your own.
