  • June 2017 - Basel has many museums, but one dedicated to music, displaying approximately 650 instruments was a real draw for us. Many unique horns and stringed instruments along with everything else. ...  more »
  • I love the music and that's the best place for me and the musicians. Look at how well maintained are old piano, trumpets, cello, violin ... And have fun listening to some music!

  • Impressive museum with a huge collection of instruments. Great interactive displays in each room. However, Only one screen in each room, so this would reduce enjoyment if busy. Well laid out and lots to see. A great interactive display showing how a pipe organ works. Sadly, little hands on chance to play! Worth a visit
  • Very beautiful museum, I don't play any instruments so I thought this was possibly not for me, however, I was wrong. The museum has interactive tablets in each room that play songs which include the instruments on display which is very interesting. The museum is inside the old prison, one of the cells remains which was also interesting to see.
  • Great museum to stop in for about an hour and a half on a Sunday afternoon. It wasn't crowded early. I saw instruments I didn't know existed. Descriptions are in German but many display rooms have additional info in English in the computers. I thought the rate is CHF 7 was quite reasonable. I'm glad a friend recommended it to me.
  • A must-visit for all musicians and music lovers!!
  • I recommend it! I was there twice and I will go back visiting it for sure, when I'll be in Basel again. There are so many other experiences to have, yet, listening the audio and watching all the details of the historical instruments.
