This is probably the best music museum in the world. It has a wonderful collection of all western musical instruments organized in a chronological order showing their development. Visitors are provided with an individual listening unit in their choice of language. As you progress through the five floors of exhibits you can select and listen to short audio segments about the particular exhibit. Many of the instruments on exhibit also have numbers which can be entered on the keypad of the listening unit to hear brief excepts of music played on each o fthe instruments. Many of the instruments on display are rare and of significant value: Stradivari violins, historical pianos, original brass instruments made by Sax, etc. In addition to the western/European instruments and musci there are also displays of electronic instruments and ones from other areas of the world (Asia, Africa, Latin America, etc.). This museum is a must see for anyone visiting Paris and with an interest in music. It is not an exageration to say that this may be a more unique and memorable place to visit than some of the other more well known attractions in Paris!
