The building itself has a contemporary feel and features an S-shaped two-story central corridor, with exhibit halls extending on either side. The architecture is interesting, but I really didn't have the time to give it any justice. Here are a couple of shots that (sort of) worked out.
As usual, I found myself taking photos of only parts of the instruments or displays that I found most interesting, such as the following.
The ground floor includes displays on the history of musical instruments. Here are a few shots from that area.
There were a number of instruments even more unusual than these.
I liked that I included only a portion of the guitar in the above image.
The brass instruments got their due also.
Now I know what a flugelhorn is.
I was happy with the reflections caught in the bell of this saxophone.
Even if you have no particular knowledge of or interest in music, I would strongly recommend visiting this museum.
