To exhibit music : this is the challenge taken up by the Musée de la musique.

A visit to the Museum immerses the visitor in 400 years of musical history, discovering both rare and familiar objects from all cultures of the world, with the help of an audio-visual tour. This guide follows the main sections of the museum’s itinerary, highlighting some of its finest instruments, seen in their historic, social and musical context : among others, violins by Stradivarius, Chopin’s piano, Django Reinhardt’s guitar, Frank Zappa’s synthesizer or a spectacular harp of the Burmese royal dynasties.
