Museum of Musical Instruments

Musikinstrumenten-Museum

This museum is in close proximity to the Berlin Philharmonie. Collection of the museum comprises over 3 thousand musical instruments from different eras. One of the most valuable objects displayed at the museum is the clavecin that belonged to Yolande de Polignac, the favourite musical instrument of Marie Antoinette and French nobles that by mere miracle survived after the French Revolution. Visitors can also see the beautiful flutes which were played by Friedrich II. Museum is frequently called a "living" museum as it regularly houses concerts of classical music. Wurlitzer organ is especially popular among the audience as this instrument of the beginning of the XX century can easily replace the entire orchestra.
