This is my second trip to Berlin and to this museum. It is amazing to see the instruments that date back hundreds of years (especially being a musician). This time I brought my daughter and her friend, and they enjoyed the new electronic instrument section....More

Great place for any musician / amateur / hobbyist to visit! Learned a lot and enjoyed the museum. There are so many instruments and you get a good audio guide.

We found this museum by chance, and were not disappointed. it is beautifully laid out, with a range of musical instruments from the 16th century onwards. There is a rare glass harmonica (the world's most dangerous instrument?!), and a splendid Wurlitzer, which we were lucky...More

I would say one thing about this museum, which seems really obvious. You have to be massively into musical instruments to find this place interesting. I went with my wife who enjoyed it and has an interest in instruments, however for me I found it...More

For musicians and those folks interested in learning about, looking at and hearing old instruments, this museum should get five circles. For everyone else, maybe just three circles. Since I'm a musician I loved seeing all the antique instruments and hearing the samples of them...More

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood.
Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop

I had the audio guide, which gives a commentary on a number (I would estimate about 10-20%) of the instruments, and allows you to hear a piece of music performed on them. If you listen to all and see all the instruments on... More
