Music lovers and artists? Or just tired of the "usual" types of museums? This will be a stimulating and entertaining visit for the whole family, a journey to the origins of music, which has always accompanied the man in his history and is able to create emotions.
Starting from the earliest ancient depictions of musical instruments on high-reliefs or plaster fragments, passing through terracotta instruments that have fallen into disuse but still functioning as the horn and the double tibia, so full of mysterious charm; you will also admire exotic instruments from Africa and Asia, such as the ancient chinese four-string lute or the typical Japanese koto, belonging to the group of harps.
Do not miss the opportunity to admire very rare objects, such as the only existing reed pipe organ, or the nineteenth-century piece of glass harmonica, as well as a collection of 18th-century miniature instruments from Neapolitan cribs.
An entire room is also devoted to a piano made by its own inventor, Bartolomeo Cristofori, while in the other rooms there are guitars, lutes and cymbals such as the one by Hans Müller, or harps such as the famous Barberini Harp.
Different eras, different materials and different origins make this museum rich and interesting with over 800 exhibited works that will reveal mysteries and curiosities about music and its history.
