The museum has a great collection of instruments, but the staff was very unfriendly. They hardly spoke a word english which was too bad. I also missed the history behind the instrument, mostly there was only a sign with the name of the instrument. Maybe...More

It displays a large collection of instruments from several centuries arranged by families. Delightful to see the evolutionary tree including many dead-ends. There are also listening stations...More

Great museum featuring all sorts of instruments and showcasing different sounds. In addition to viewing musical instruments, people can listen to recordings of them and sounds. The museum is very old and probably in need of some upgrading... It also includes a few darker themes,...More
