It is a museum of instruments mainly. You will definitely get to see a wide variety and even listen to a few of them. I went when there was an exhibition on "Music and Fairy Tale". Well, it was childlike yes, but not childish and...More

My niece and my family visited the place in Dec 2017 and we were pleasantly amazed by it. My niece, the "Mozart" of our clan, was simply mesmerised by the wide range of music instruments on display there. Pointing to a particular harp on display,...More

Great museum featuring all sorts of instruments and showcasing different sounds. In addition to viewing musical instruments, people can listen to recordings of them and sounds. The museum is very old and probably in need of some upgrading... It also includes a few darker themes,...More
