WOW. What a great place. You can admire the Philharmonie building outside, and then have a great time at this museum. There are displays of instruments from tribal people all the way up to modern times. The audio guide was great. There are short video...More

Quite a way from the centre of Paris but worth the effort to go. I went to Fare the North (or East also works well) and then had a lovely walk along the river to the not well narked museum. Asking around helps a lot....More

Great museum for musicians and music lovers especially for classical music. The collection of instruments is unique and so much more than I expected prior to my visit. The museum provides great audio guides that will have tracks of sound clips of some of the...More

An incredibly interesting display (with free audio at various points with historical information and samples of the musical instruments), and well worth a visit!

A must see for anybody that has ever practiced music or had any connection to it whatsoever. You start at the birth of the opera and the creation of the first instruments, then through enlightenment phase and romantic Europe, you stroll pass Chopin's piano and...More

This is z great museum at any time but whilst they have a Chagall exhibition it's even better but it finishes at the end of the month. Very busy so purchase tickets ahead of time and be prepared to queue. It's 10euros so not expensive...More

Since I was an architectural student, I wanted to visit this well known building "Cite de la musique". I wasn't disappointed at all. You feel you are walking into a musical note.... or passing through an instrument of music. Must see in Paris.

We visited this museum because we had seen enough paintings and didn't feel that our brains could take any more. It was a great alternative. The museum was surprisingly huge, spread over five floors, with an amazing inventory of historical instruments. The video panels next...More
