I thought this museum was quite nice with different types of instruments from roughly 1600 until now. There were also some instruments that you could try out, which was great. However, the staff was quite unfriendly. It could be their lack of English proficiency, but...More

This Museum is in the centre of Berlin. Upon entering it is the vast space that first impresses. Many instrument collections I have seen are in small spaces. Here you can walk around almost all exhibits including those in exhibition cases. Although the keyboard instruments...More

I followed the audio guide, which is available in English. Most of experiences about 'classics' were bounded in glass, while some of them were not. I found we should not even touch them for the sake of conserving original status. I didn't know why they...More
