It's easy to overlook this museum in the shade of the Philharmonic Hall but make the effort to visit. The museum holds a wide and deep collection of European instruments, including contemporary electronic pieces.

Well worth taking the guided tour. The guides pull out some of the instruments and play them, or let them play themselves (like the automatic piano). Very interesting, and worth the visit to any music lover.

There are several museums in the location, but the most interesting is the musical instrument one. There is a large amount of instruments from all over the world, with a focus on string and brass instruments. In the nearby garden one can do various music related experiments. Beautiful place with high educational value.
