  • We were in town for a weekend and noticed that we had not been to this attraction before. Being close to Act Tower, it was really easy to get to. When inside, we were treated to a history of how music is and was made around the world. It will only take you about an hour, but the collection is cool and extensive.
  • If you're interested in music at all a fantastic visit with countless instruments new and old from around the world, some that you can even play.
  • Excellent museum for music! It's worth it. It was really stunned by the presentation.
  • A lot of places. You can overview the instruments around the world. Additionally we could experience the theremin.

  • Surprisingly, so 1 time anyhow-Chan and all the many instruments that have been exhibited. You can use the headphones hear instrument sounds (songs using instruments, actually) really. Many musical instruments I've never quite seen the was that during the time has passed. Real only part time, so thought I can also go to Hamamatsu to visit also.
