It is a small but great museum. One of a kind. A must. If you are lucky to be able to arrange a private small concert in their auditorium you'll have a once in a lifetime experience.

Even for non music lovers. The instruments are, of course, amazing works of art; but the museum itself is state of the art. And you can get a decent meal with lots of wine right downstairs.

Lovely museum. We enjoyed the headsets so we could hear how the different instruments sounded. The process of making a violin was throughly explained with computer simulations and some interactive displays aimed at children. I enjoyed them. Not being at all knowledgeable about classical music...More

A true immersion into musical and instrument history. There is no other museum quite like this one. Very restful and informative at the same time. We enjoyed watching videos of the young contest winners playing the Stradavarius instruments.

It is a very well done and interesting museum, even for a non musician like myself. It was a bit smaller than I'd imagined and unfortunately we were not able to check out the auditorium. It was mainly for my teen daughter and wife who...More
