The last time I swas in Paris (with an adult son) we stayed not too far from Parc de la Villette, and on the last day we decided to visit the park. We intended to visit both the Musee de la Musique and the Cité...More
This is a fantastic place for people who are into the history of musical instruments. Located at 221 Av Jean Jaures in the 19th in Parc de la Villette, it is worth the effort to get there. There are over 1000 instruments from the 17th...More
Both my wife and I play the piano as a hobby, so we thought this would be interesting, not expecting anything spectacular. It is the best collection of instruments I've seen in any museum. They have dozens of each type, from different time periods and...More

Never expected to get such a thorough history of musical instruments. Get the free audioguide so you can hear the actual instruments that you are looking at - in addition to geting a historical narrative.
It's a very interactive museum. You should go with time, to really appreciate the atmosphere of the museum and the sounds of the various instruments.
It's a travel along the history of the music and it combines very well visual art and sounds.
This futuristic landscape has come to define the northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
the futuristic space. Though on the outskirts of Paris, La Villette is worth the short Metro ride from the centre.
