Great assortment of pieces, loved that you could here them being played. The building housing the museum was one of my favorite parts of the museum. A beautiful vintage elevator was housed in the center , taking you up to the roof top cafe with the best view of the city if Brussels I know of!!
The Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) contains over 7,000 musical instruments, a collection that is one of the largest of its kind in the world. This museum is part of the Royal Museums of Art and History (KMKG - MRAH) which consists of a group of museums in Brussels. The other museums in this group are The Cinquantenaire Museum, the Museums of the Far East and the "Halle Gate". Within these four museums one finds one of the most diverse art collections in Beligum containing art from prehistory to the current day representing every continent.
Very cool museum. You can take a look at a nice assortment of different instruments. The collection of violins was especially impressive.
it is an opportunity to see and most of all hear amazing music instruments very old and very rear all together in a beautiful bulding
The Musical Instruments Museum (MIM) is a real treasure, where you can listen to many of the 1,500 instruments on display through infrared headphones. It’s housed in the former Old England department store built in 1899 in the art nouveau style, and has the best view of the center of Brussels from the roof top café. The buidling alone is worth the visit.http://www.mim.be/en
