The History of Music

The Musical Instrument Museum (MIM), set in a stunning art nouveau building, offers four floors of musical instruments and interactive musical history from the bagpipes to the harpsichord to the electric guitar. The museum was originally created as part of the Brussels Royal Music Conservatory in 1877 and was intended as a learning tool for students to study traditional instruments. It has since evolved to become an extensive museum where any music fan can learn about their favorite instrument or musical era. Stand in front of any instrument in the museum and your innovative audio guide (free with admission) will play a sample of music from it. You don't have to be a classical pianist or Haydn enthusiast to enjoy this place.
