This museum contains a variety of classical instruments, from the renaissance to the 20th century. Some of the instruments were strange, such as a double-necked guitar and a violin with two sets of strings. The Neue Berg is also a beautiful building. However, in terms...More

Great museum of historical musical instruments, many pianos and piano type instruments but also much much more. Anybody who is interested in anything connected with music will enjoy. Most of the instruments are 19th and 20th century so some few hundred years old.

What a wonderful collection of musical instruments. They are mostly from the early 20th and 19th century. So date back 500 years ago. Be sure to get the audio guide because there no English explanations inside.

Entrance to the this museum is included in the ticket to the Kunsthistorisches Museum, which is located a short distance from Neue Burg (the home of this museum). There were very few people there when I visited, so it felt like I had the cavernous...More
