Overview

This collection of instruments seemed like the poor relation of the Historical Musem for many years - a lack of money and space that only a few of the more than 2000 instruments were on display. Anonymous donors made the dream of a building for the museum possible - instruments from over the ages are now exhibited in this former prison. The instruments all come from civil collections, which makes this museum slightly different to those in Paris and Vienna. Drums, trumpets, horns and many other lesser-known instruments are all on display. They have 255 examples of music being played on the instruments on display, and the touchscreen technology insures an educational visit.
