  • As the title implies, I've visited a number (around 6 at last count) of Musical Instrument Museums globally over the years, and I must say, the Museu de la Musica in Barcelona was definitely one of th...  more »
  • The visit is made entertaining and interesting. If we had to find a fault, it would be the lack of some traditional instruments of other communities or countries and the lack of information on each instrument. Even so, the Museum fulfills its function very well and is in perfect condition. Other disadvantages, the location, many people can't find it, but who does it, get excited.

  • With the Barcelona card (which I highly recommend you do!) I also visited this Museum for free ... very interesting to see all kinds of tools and their evolution over the years. Also cute music zone where you can "use" the main tools. With the card, it is recommended!

  • This museum can be interesting for people who are passionate about music. Still, I think there is very little explanation in the exhibitors

  • Modern and cozy Museum where to enjoy an infinity of musical instruments of the ages and around the world. Models and interactive make the visit very attractive to large and small. They also have educational activities for children that will help them to enter this world. It is next to the Auditorium, so it can be used to visit the Museum, and then go to a concert.
