The Museum of Musical Instruments is located in the “Old England Building” on Art Hill, which is near the Royal Palace, and was opened in 2000. Annually, the museum records more than 125,000 music lovers who go on a journey through time with music.
The museum has an exceptional collection of over 8,000 musical instruments, of which over 1,200 are on display. On four levels, visitors are introduced to electronic and mechanical instruments, the development of European instruments from the Middle Ages to the 19th century, instruments from European folk music, as well as instruments that do not originate from Europe with their respective stories. Through headphones, visitors can listen to the sounds of the instruments on display.
The museum also houses a concert hall that can seat 200 people, a museum store, a library and a restaurant.
