  • Any true violin lover would have to visit this museum. On the history is explained and there is also a nice documentary about the construction of a violin. Top attraction is the, heavily guarded, collection of violins by Stradivarius, Guarneri and Amati.

  • Nothing to say. A perfect combination of period instruments of unquestioned importance and modernity given by the media. I wanted to visit the Museum to try to broaden the perspective on the world of violin making. I must admit though that I've "learned" nothing more than I already knew. Sure, it's not every day you have a short ' ' a Stradivarius ... a Jesus ... Though expecting something more about the explanation of the instrument (it is the violin Museum ...). As it stands I see it more affordable for those who already know the topic or for those who are content to have seen a loved, rather a Guarneri ...

  • For years, we wanted to visit has always been this wonderful Museum. Very easy to reach with well-lit underground quasi almost under the Museum. Who loves music, not get around the history of all the families of violin makers in Cremona. And then these marvels of violins, violas, Violincellos etc. which hang down like from the sky in the rooms. The audio guide is excellent, you can listen to is always a short piece of music with the corresponding instrument by means of a numeric code. Hard to beat, the approximately 40-minute performance of the excellent Moldovan artist Aurelia Macovei on a Stradivarius from 1669 in the Auditorium was then at Sunday noon at 12: 00. My wife tears just about the jaws as you can get out of this instrument with this incredible sound body such beautiful music. Look up on the Web page, when there are such small concerts on Sundays, soon but the Stradivari Festival. We will be back!

  • Wonderful visit. Ask for a guide: all of them are english speaking and very schooled on the matter. Don't miss the periodic auditions (violins MUST be played often!) in great acoustic Auditorium. Cremona is a very small town and the closed Cathedral is worth a visit Square as well.
  • You can see a wonderful collection of violins, both made by famous old masters and new ones, winners of competitions. You can learn about the history of the instrument and how it is made. If you are lucky, you will be able to hear the voice of one of their most famous violins at a small concert.
  • If you like violins you will love this museum
  • Modern and captivating. The building is a museum itself
  • Really nice museum!
