Bologna seems to have a knack of preserving the old beautifully and yet using old buildings to good effect This is just another example. There’s so much to see and do in this city but this shouldn’t be overlooked
A small piece of Bologna's history as a music capital. Many interesting artifacts in here including original autographed manuscript of the Barber of Seville. Very interesting for a music lover, and worth a brief visit.
We spent a good two hours touring this lovely museum. The exhibits are very well displayed and the English audio guide was excellent, especially the short music clips to expand on the information provided. Very well worth our time.
I went to this museum because I am a musician, but was not expecting it to be as wonderful as it is.
Audio guide is wonderful - a must
Staff very nice and helpful

This is near the Towers in Bologna. It is housed in an historic, grand building. They offer an audio guide for 4 euros in addition to the entry cost of 5 euros. Worth it though to get a real insight into the exhibition. The exhibits...More
