  • We found this museum by chance, and were not disappointed. it is beautifully laid out, with a range of musical instruments from the 16th century onwards. There is a rare glass harmonica (the world's m...  more »
  • Really worth a visit the place for a number of reasons. The place was big and clean and people where at least a little bit. Kino-organ was the most memorable, as well as the "hevikitarat" skulls of the middle ages:-). If the musavehkeet is of interest as all the best places to visit in the Karajan-Concert Hall and Just Music movement.

  • I would say one thing about this museum, which seems really obvious. You have to be massively into musical instruments to find this place interesting. I went with my wife who enjoyed it and has an int...  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.
