  • Friend us, at the end of his first visit. Great look is a small museum displaying instruments. Underground exhibit ethnic instruments were like a grocery store. Enjoy a unique form. I understand that evolve from what ancient of wind and stringed instruments, keyboard instruments, Western instruments. Guests can also chose among the exhibited instruments sound sound headphones is everywhere. Yamaha, Kawai, Roland and keyboard instrument growing there, particularly volumes of keyboard instruments. Introduced by a number of classical harpsichord, clavichord, and harpsichord from up on the modern piano, antique musical instruments. Modern instruments corner your exhibition can enjoy family-friendly touch. The upstairs stage there are gorgeous & volutmiy are Asian instruments and have a chance to hear sound. There are traditional Japanese musical instruments exhibition, and interesting exhibits that roots was a one stringed instrument divided into East and West Silk Road and arrived at destination, on the other hand became the mandolin, and Biwa. I wrote the first compact, were in this vast area, so I do. It was of fire special curator's African instrument description and on the day of the concert, were very helpful. I once stopped, visited Hamamatsu music enthusiasts have never seen in this exhibition, so take a look at.

  • Good tut for about one hour in that Hamamatsu is a municipal district of the musical instrument industry, the Museum without visitors. Because it is just a few minutes from the station staff, also 70-year-old was free of surprise are over. Different instruments collected from all over, but still many type piano collection, was overwhelmed by the. To understand the whole thing and take a few hours, I want details, services until there is whether or not unknown.

  • The museum is very close to the station and has luggage storage (but you can also leave them in the storage at the station as well). The place is nice and well taken care of. Full with various kinds of musical instruments from around the world. And I do mean around the world. You can even listen to the sounds the instruments make from recordings. Staff here are very friendly and helpful although we do not speak much Japanese.
  • Nice.. be careful yo may want to buy a musical instrument shortly afterward. Try the play room, there are musical instruments you can really touch when you feel desperately want to play..
  • 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.
  • Lots of musical instruments and listening recorded music facility available.
  • 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.
