Musical Instrument Museum

Exploring the world through music

Save to my Account

The Musical Instrument Museum showcases thousands of indigenous instruments from every country in the world. Instruments are grouped by geographical region and by type of music.

State-of-the-art audio and visual technologies bring the instruments to life. You can watch musicians play the instruments on screens and listen to the music through headphones.

Kids will enjoy watching the see-through concert piano play. They can also bang on a djembe (African healing drum) or strum a berimbau (single-stringed instrument) in the Experience Gallery.

The museum regularly holds festivals and classes. Check the online calendar for a schedule of events. You’ll also find a list of concerts. The museum’s 300-seat concert hall provides an intimate setting for renowned artists.
