Musikinstrumenten-Museum

From Bach's harpsichord to the flutes of Frederick the Great

– © Musikinstrumenten-Museum, C.-S. Restle

Discover treasures from 400 years of musical history. Exhibits at the Musical Instrument Museum include Bach's harpsichord and various replicas, Carl Maria von Weber's fortepiano, transverse flutes and a portable harpsichord that belonged to Frederick the Great, wind instruments, viols, violins and oboes, and the largest cinema and theatre organ in Europe, the four-manual Mighty Wurlitzer (live performance every Saturday).

Another highlight is the amazing collection of Naumburg wind instruments, almost the entire complement of a German town wind band from around 1600. Around 800 of the collection’s more than 3,000 instruments are regularly on display. And that's just for starters. The programme also includes concerts performed on historical instruments and regular guided tours with instrument demonstrations.

Tours and Workshops

Public tours of the permanent collection are open to all age groups and are also of interest to children because of the sound samples. You can also book a tour which can be specially tailored to specific age groups or areas of interest at €45 per group. Young violinists love to spend time in the extensive violin department of the museum. In collaboration with outside providers, the Museum of Musical Instruments also offers children's workshops.
