  • 臨時看到評價不錯所以去的,成人好像是9歐,26歲以下好像是7歐 建築本身很有歷史感,記得是6層樓,頂樓是餐廳但是沒什麼好的view啦! 實際展區是3層,拿著語音導覽聽樂器的聲音非常有趣 :D 2小時可能有點不夠唷!對喜歡音樂的人來說 
  • I had memories of a welcoming place for children, with reputable workshops and I have become disillusioned: NOTHING

  • The building, Art Nouveau style, beautiful. Somewhat missed the luminous being, because then the boards of instruments are organized very dark. The method used to hear the instruments, through an app is interesting, practical, and entertaining for children. In addition to the instruments they have a room with a gallery on the building and its time, a well-stocked shop and a restaurant at the top with views over the city, which can be accessed free of charge.

  • This is one of my favourite buildings in Brussels, but I'd never been in it before. What an amazing museum, even for someone as unmusical as me. Totally bewildered by the huge variety of instruments on display (and that you could listen to). It was fun though, and nice to see some things that were previously only names in books for me.
  • Lovely museum of musical instuments. When in larger group it is certainly recommended to concider a guided visit and explore the sounds of some of the exhibited instuments. It is a guaranteed two hour visit, and a childfriendly stop in the city of Brussels. The museum is located in a spectacular art-nouveau building, known as the "Old England"-building.
  • Interesting place to visit, even if you are not so much into classical music or history. You don't even need a guide, just put on headphones (provided to each visitor) and walk around. You can listen to the majority of the instruments standing right next to them.
  • Unique museum with musical instruments from all around the world and superb views of downtown Brussels from the terrace restaurant at the 10th floor. The building it self is a master piece.
  • Amazing museum, very well organized. They give you an audioguide and you can follow the sound of the instruments during your visit.
