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.

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.
