Very small museum with some information about the saxophone history. If you are in Dinant you can swing by and also take a fun photo with a statue of Adolphe Sax right outside.

You can't escape saxophones in Dinant. This museum is very small. Basically one room but it is free admission and it does have a nice stained glass mural. There are also nice stained glass windows in the nearby church (the one with the onion domes)

This small, free interactive museum is worth a quick visit. Interesting info for music lovers and helpful in understanding why Dinant loves Monsieur Sax. Easy diversion during your day in Dinant.

This is a very informative and relatively small museum, free of charge. Everything you really need to know about Adolphe Sax is here. You can't miss it; there are footsteps in the sidewalk and pieces of sax on the lamp posts on the way! This...More
