A museum where you can really learn and try the instruments
Jul 2019 • Solo
I have been to many music instruments museum in the world, and a lot of them are just a display of instruments that you can’t touch, you can’t hear and you forget after visiting. This museum is different. The owner Leszek is an amazing guy, who is enthusiastic to explain and demonstrate his collection of instruments. And visitors can try and play music on these instruments, in which I learnt a lot during the visit. Thanks very much for the experience! Tips for visitors, please remember to book in advance by phone.

World of guitars for everyone!
Sep 2018 • Couples
Our today's visit at the History Museum of Guitar was great! Mr Leszek is a very passionate person and he is sharing the knowledge about guitars from all over the world with such a big enthusiasm. For example we even played on a guitar made from turtle body! We spent there a little over 2 hours but for sure we could be there longer. In the end of the visit, there is a possibility of buying CD with music composed by Mr Leszek. He is playing at that CD on some instruments from the museum. Very unique sounds and melodies! If you like the music, if you are a guitar player or you are just searching for something really interesting - come to the History Museum of Guitar in Katowice.

Fascinating and Engaging

The owner spent two hours with us telling us about the history and fabric of his collection, allowing us to play (at least attempt to). Incredibly interesting and our host was very knowledgeable, funny and accommodating. Couldn’t recommend more!

Fun and informative afternoon at the History of Guitars Museum
Oct 2017 • Couples
Found this place through TripAdvisor and we were delighted that we took the time to visit.

It was quick and easy to arrange a tour with the owner who was extremely proud of his collection and delighted to show us around, let us play the instruments and talk us through their history.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in music. A great way to spend an hour or two in Katowice.

こんなに沢山の弦楽器がこの世にあっただなんて驚きです。またそれぞれの楽器のルーツを丁寧に説明下さり、とても興味深かったです。これからもコレクションは増えていくと仰っていたので、数年後に再訪したいです。

I have never imagined that there are such many type of guitars in the world! The owner explained each historical and cultural ground in details and it was quite interesting. I want to visit again within a few years to see the additional collection!

Something special
Aug 2017 • Couples
I found out about the museum through a tripadvisor and I'm happy to visit it. It is really a special place where you can see different kinds of quitars and lutes from all around the world. The owner is a great quitar expert and he knows a lot about the history of quitars and lutes.
We didn't know that we had contacted the owner in advance. So we went to the museum and it was closed. We called the owner who was so friendly and came in an hour and showed us the museum. We spent almost 2 hours in the museum. Thank you!

Evolution of the lute - well explained
Aug 2017 • Couples
It was easy to arrange the time for a private tour via Facebook message. The owner made the tour very interesting with his knowledge of evolution of the Instruments. There were different kinds of guitars and lutes from all around the world! We could have been there for longer but the owner did not have enough time for us that day. So we paid 50zlt for 45minutes, but you can get longer tour if you contact them early enough.
