Lonely Planet review
Packed with fun, precious and rare sound machines, the Musical Instruments Museum shares a building with the Philharmonie. There are plenty of old trumpets, bizarre bagpipes and even a talking walking stick as well as a handful of 'celebrity instruments': the glass harmonica invented by Ben Franklin, a flute played by Frederick the Great and Johann Sebastian Bach's cembalo. Stop at the listening stations to hear what some of the more obscure instruments sound like.
A crowd favourite is the Mighty Wurlitzer (1929), an organ with more buttons and keys than a troop of beefeaters that's cranked up at noon on Saturday. Classical concerts, many free, take place year-round (ask for a free schedule or check the website).
