Museum of Musical Instruments

District / neighborhood: city ​​center

Milan is a city of culture and therefore every year it attracts crowds of visitors including art lovers, architecture lovers, and anyone who enjoys an urban vacation where the main attractions and activities are visits to museums, art exhibitions, theater, dance and music performances and of course countless historical sites that are evidence of the fascinating history of Milan and all of Italy.

Thanks to the great abundance of such and other interesting places, Milan attracts quite a few families with children alongside groups of all ages as well as loving couples who want to enjoy a romantic and interesting vacation.

They will easily find many activities, lively events, and points of interest to visit, along with excellent restaurants and pleasant hotels.

If you are visiting Milan with small children, or define yourself as an ardent music fan, one of the popular museums you won’t want to miss. The Musical Instruments Museum – is a fascinating museum where you can spend a lot of time with great pleasure alongside a fascinating learning experience. A journey through time that will allow you to get to know instruments and Music from different periods in history, starting from the 15th century AD to the present day.

During your visit to the museum, you and the little ones will be able to get a full impression of less than 700 different musical instruments. Including some that you didn’t even know existed because today they are no longer used. Some of them went through many incarnations until they became the musical instruments we know today. Some simply disappeared from the world (with the exception of these which appear in the museum of course).

In addition to the great wealth of the varied instruments, it is recommended to linger for a moment and also pay attention to the different raw materials from which the musical instruments are made, including “standard” materials but also quite a few instruments built from special materials such as rare types of wood, animal horns and more. All of these are made in a traditional way and many of them were made by hand using craft methods, some of which are no longer used today.

It is therefore a museum that combines a love for music but also a special and different point of view for ancient art techniques and old traditions that are no longer encountered today.
