The Museum of Music has become world renowned for its collection and presentation of musical instruments. The historical heritage within its walls spans centuries.

The Museum of Music represents a collection of more than 7000 instruments and art objects, with almost 1000 on exhibit in the permanent exhibition space. The museum presents a history of Western music from the 17th century to today and an overview of the main musical cultures of the world.
Visits to the Museum can be prolonged or enhanced by guided tours, conferences or concerts presented on the instruments in the collection. Live performances are put on every day in the Museum, providing constant opportunities for dialogue between musicians and the public. Promenade Concerts take place in all the rooms of the Museum on certain Sundays.

Studio Pierre Henry
The Museum hosts the instruments, machines and objects of Pierre Henry’s Studio Son/Ré.
Studio Pierre Henry is located at the end of the permanent exhibition path. It is accessible Wednesday to Sunday.
