Quite a way from the centre of Paris but worth the effort to go. I went to Fare the North (or East also works well) and then had a lovely walk along the river to the not well narked museum. Asking around helps a lot. Need 1 to 2 hours. Good audio in English available. Very interesting and life performances held. Toilets available. Once done stroll back along the river and enjoy the locals sun bathing or having a picnic. Musee of science also close by. At least a half day outing.

Great museum for musicians and music lovers especially for classical music. The collection of instruments is unique and so much more than I expected prior to my visit. The museum provides great audio guides that will have tracks of sound clips of some of the instruments displayed.

An incredibly interesting display (with free audio at various points with historical information and samples of the musical instruments), and well worth a visit!

Although this attraction did not appear in our guidebook, after reading reviews on trip advisor and as keen musicians we were keen to visit this museum. Although a little outside of town, the metro is close by. Not open until midday but well worth the wait! Free audio guide supported the information given and made the museum really interactive. There were a range of exhibits not only about the history of music but about modern and world music as well as the development of different instruments. A must do for any keen music fan!

This museum is not on the regular beaten path for tourists, which makes it even more appealing. Located in the La Villette Park area and housed inside the Symphony building it is a true gem and very reasonably priced. Included is 5 floors of over 9000 instruments and artifact items. Every musical instrument you can imagine from many cultures around the world. We were a little confused by the layout and didn't do the tour as we should have so we did quite a bit of backtracking. No problem though, we were enthralled by this wonderful collection. There were also live musicians in a few areas playing various instruments and musical videos all over to watch instruments from around the world being played. You do get headphones and a digital player that describes many instruments as well. If you are a music lover do not miss this place.
