  • 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.
