  • This is a comprehensive and well displayed collection of musical instruments which shows the development of western orchestral instruments. When we were there we were lucky enough to hear the Wurlitze...  more »
  • Fun to see instruments-a harmonica in glass, a flute used by Frédéric the great, and the harpsichord of j.s. Bach-possibility to discover the sound of instruments or mysterious-free with the passage entrance Museum of three days-audio guide only in German or English-cafeteria can't miss with a dish of the day (deer with Brussels sprouts) interesting for one low price -

  • Culture at its best witnessing a truly magnificent collection of instruments spanning hundreds of years. The condition is unbelievable.

  • 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.
