  • This is such a fun place. Every one of our family members had a wonderful time. My only wish was that there would have been a piano or some musical instruments that one of the great composers had played present on the premises. There are replicas and other authentic instruments from that era. Anyone traveling should make an effort to go see this place. My kids had a great time.
  • Great museum. Fun. Interactive. Awesome. From conducting an orchestra to sitting down and listing to what a baby would hear inside a womb. It is a great family day at for tourists, educational trips and locals. It's a must do even if you don't like music
