【アクセス】 駅から10分かからず、と好アクセスロケーション。 [Access] It takes less than 10 minutes from JR Hamamatsu station. 【入場料と印象】 Hotelで割引券Getして入場が吉です。一般は800円。隔週水曜日の休館日注意。 Entree fee is 800 Yen. You must get a discount ticket in Hotels. Is is closed on some Wednesday. 入ったとたんに地味なアジア系の楽器の展示で、「失敗したか!」と思いましたが…。BFのヨーロッパの鍵盤、管楽器のコレクションには驚きました。 音楽好きだけでなく結構楽しめる博物館です。楽器には手を触れられませんが、写真はOKです。 浜松市の楽器への想いが感じられる場所です。ぜひ! When I just entered, I felt I have...More
