    Thinking only about Oriental musical instruments and when and if it unravels a comprehensive history of Western music, very interesting. Almost without hope for purposes of timing so not enough at all times.

    Haute is 1 F and BF 2 floors of numerous musical instruments is also played with commentary and back to the Bell and play corner, such as several times a day, so gently squeezed one day. Is a musical instrument in the world, but especially piano and enhancement. Rare piano and its history is recommended those interested. Unusual instruments, such as the Asian, Oceania, and they listen to music, video.

     Visit the work involved on the piano, so I was wondering. I think non-go to the detail of the Museum of musical instruments might be good in the knowledge of Asian instruments and musical instruments of Africa too generally to not be in the country have of the University of Tokyo, and tones free listen because when there are events in not particularly a recommended place. But I enjoyed in its own way.

    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.
