This is well worth a visit if you like music or musical instruments. I was fascinated.Over 1000 instruments in display cases charting the evolution of some of them. Also many keyboard instruments. Students at the Faculty of music are allowed to play them. There is a small selection. One each of the brass and woodwind instruments for the children to... 更多
This is a real find and well worth a visit if you are at all interested in music. Located in part of the Music Faculty this small museum contains numerous glass cases holding a vast collection of every type of musical instrument. The free audio guide allows you to hear what many of the instruments sound like. I doubt if... 更多
The best thing about this place is that you can touch and play some of their instruments! Not many museums allow that.
It's been on my radar for some time to visit this museum. I should have gone sooner and it's free to enter. A vast collection of mainly woodwind and brass together with some string and pianos and their predecessors, too big for their small space. If you like finding out for yourself and minimal interpretation this museum does it, well... 更多
Every display is packed with historical instruments. Visit during term time as we did and you're likely to be treated to students rehearsing their repertoires. Make sure to ask for an audioguide. You can listen to music samples recorded on the exact instruments in each cabinet.
We visited during a family day when there was a wide selection of instruments to try such as serpents and theremins. The highlight was playing the gamelan (Javan orchestra mainly percussion) for an hour. Very knowledgeable staff explained the exhibits well and answered questions.
Fascinating museum - great to hear clips of many of the instruments being played. All 'guides' who were there were really interested in the collection and keen to share information but also give you space to browse.
Whether you like musical instruments or don't play one, there's bound to be something in there to learn. Incredible collections of various wind instruments (e.g., alto saxhorns, flutes, saxophones, shawms, trombones, trumpets, French horns, contrabassoon, etc), string instruments (e.g., guitar, viola, violin, etc), spinets, harpsichords, harmonium, barrel organ, military timpani and Jews' harps. There's a listening device for you to... 更多
I saw this museum on the map and was intrigued. Despite no particular interest in music I found a brief visit entertaining. There are cases and cases of instruments, some of which I had never heard of. I liked the recordings accessed via a handheld player. Not the easiest place to find, but worth the effort.
we visited this excellent small museum of musical instruments. for a couple of hours and it was an unexpected little gem.
