The Cité de la Musique, on the southern edge of Parc de la Villette, is a striking, triangular-shaped concert hall whose mission is to introduce music from around the world to Parisians. The Musée de la Musique inside displays some 900 rare musical instruments; you can hear many of them being played on the audioguide.

Next door is the new Paris Philharmonic hall (estimated opening 2015) as well as the prestigious Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse, a top school for classical musicians and dancers.
