  • In the same neighborhood the Gemäldegalerie, in the shadow of the Berlin Philharmonic, nestles a very interesting Museum of musical instruments. It brings together hundreds of harpsichords (which one would have been Bach), piano (which the Webers), including mechanical, of brass, of organs (Church, drama, barbarity, Hammond), wood (including the Frédéric flute and its storage box), percussion, violins (including a stradivarius)... More inventions which have not been successful. We don't know where to look... but in silence. It would seem that helmets are expected to hear what we see... but did not propose us, I think that the system should be down. And in some places, computers with headphones offered hardly antiquated and interactive use. Another small problem (hi hi), it is that we say he needs a little more care these beautiful objects. A shot of wax from time to time would not hurt.

  • It is a Museum of musical instruments, facing the main street, about 2 minutes walk from the Berlin Philharmonic Hall. Keyboard instruments, string instruments, wind instruments, as well as synthesizer — view and plenty of historical instruments. Is kinda sorry could not understand meticulously commentary not only Germany, but Wagner and R. Are on display, along with portraits and Strauss, the inspiring moment. Appreciation from deposit because you can't carry-on baggage, lockers (1 euro is returned at a later time). Did eat in the basement, but there are outstanding experience. It is off the beaten path is recommended!

  • For musicians and those folks interested in learning about, looking at and hearing old instruments, this museum should get five circles. For everyone else, maybe just three circles. Since I'm a musici...  more »

  • The collection is actually really good, and the museum has a lot of potential. Unfortunately the staff hasn't been very helpful, and the museum lacks of interactivity. It still worth a visit, but remember to get the audio guide, there's no other way to learn something.
  • Ok, it is an amazing collection, but what an unhelpful and unfriendly welcome. I am a curator and already have an interest but it pains me to see such great potential undermined by woeful visitor services and interpretation. Go along - the place needs your support - but tell them they need to improve their offer or they will wither and die.
  • Nice outside look
  • I visited this museum in the end of July 2012 and was met by the sadest looking man I have ever seen in a museum (and with all the museums I have been to now, that says a lot....) This museum has a good collection of instruments and hearing the instruments being played on the audio guide is cool, but no information about the making of the instruments is given in the audio guide or anywhere else in the museum. The little written information that is scattered around the museum is in German only. Many of the instruments are amazingly beautiful but they are presented in a very "sterile" way. I wished the museum had organized the collection in a way that made it possible to sit down and study the instruments while listening to the music. It could also been interesting to see the newer instruments "in action" in music videos, live performances or demonstrations. But if you are interested in musical instruments it is worth a visit, just don`t try to order anything in the cafe after 16.00, then you will be told off by the lady there like I was....
  • Despite no further visit huge selection of instruments. The reception was already not very friendly. Problems due to handbag are purely gone and then for the first time since too large and signposted no lockers. Very unfriendly note on it. Am very disappointed.
