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.

Visiting the Museum

A trip to the museum is a musical experience! Thanks to free audio guides, visitors can actually hear the instruments they are seeing and discovering. Plus, every day at the Museum, a musician performs live and interacts with visitors.
