About these ratings

If you love music, then place the Musée des Instruments de Musique (Musical Instruments Museum) at the top of your Brussels to-do list. This four-story facility is chock-full of instruments from around the globe, including a rare 17th-century spinet-harpsichord and a Chedeville bagpipe. Other must-sees include an entire 17th-century orchestra and a large collection of Indian instruments given to King Leopold II by Rajah Sir Sourindro Mohun Tagore. You can also hear what these amazing instruments sound like thanks to special headphones located in most of the exhibits. The museum also has a special area devoted to kid-friendly interactive displays.

Sitting just a block from the southwest corner of Parc de Bruxelles in Upper Town, the Musical Instrument Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from around 10 a.m. (depending on the day) to 4:45 pm. Admission is about $6 USD (€5 EUR) for adults. For more information, check out the Musical Instrument Museum website.
