One of the world’s best guitar collection is in the museum – children and students, the elderly, musicians as well as enthusiast come there to see it.
We would like to highlight Pau Casals’ sarangi cello that originates from India. Each visitors goes on a voyage through time, and learn about the making, origin and use of instruments in different historical periods, as well as what was happening on each continent. The permanent classic guitar exhibitions is one of the most significant in the world. There used to be a guitar made by Antonio de Torres, one of the world’s best guitar makers. You should not miss the historic clarinet from the 13th century, as well as Perez Molero’s organs from 1719, organs from Bali and many other instruments that great music stars used to play with.
