This museum is incredible on so many levels. It has a wide range of instruments that are organized on a geographical scale, presenting the country (shown also on a map), its culture and the instrument itself. It so interesting to see various instruments from around the world. Some of them are really unique, some of them are well-known, and others are like nothing you've seen before.

I liked mostly the Experience Gallery which is a part of the museum that host instrument that you can touch and try out. That really got to me. The exotic instruments were the best, they have such interesting components, like the Mexican snare drum that has rattlesnake snares, and the South-African electric guitar that was made out of an oil can.

The museum is really blast and has so much to offer, and not just for music lovers. It something worth seeing and experiencing.
