Info Musical Instruments Museum Berlin

It is an old, state museum (opened in 1888) in modern rooms. Especially the old and rare musical instruments are interesting. We liked a harpsichord, a forerunner of the piano from the 16th century. We found a musical instrument in a walking stick funny. Fans of modern instruments such as electric guitars can also see a lot in the Musikinstrumenten-Museum Berlin. However, the focus is on old instruments from the 16th to 20th centuries such as pianos, violins and wind instruments.
