Musical Instruments

Room for sound and playing

From harpsichord to synthesizer: The Deutsches Museum has a unique collection of musical instruments. After the first phase of the modernization, it will take centre stage. The new exhibition will also explain the changing ideas and conditions for musical sounds and performances through the ages – and how this led to more and more instruments being developed and invented. But the instruments will not be displayed as silent witnesses to the past. Instead, visitors will experience them as a lively and quite outspoken collection with enormous potential.
