So yes, the title of the Vleeshuis is a bit misleading - no longer anything having to do with butchers, this is now the best museum of musical instruments I've ever seen!
Make sure to get the audio guide when you walk in! Listening to the many audio clips of the instruments you see in the display cases enriches the experiences a hundred-fold!
From Medieval through the 19th century periods, they have everything from Zinks to Contrabassoons, and many with audio clips to enlighten you as to how they sound when featured in first-rate music. Also, some cool musical curiosities, like the Guidonian hand, with a woman singing all the different hexachords. Don't know what I'm talking about? Get to the Vleeshuis and you will find out!
