The museum is an excellent experience with hundreds if not thousands of instruments. A lot of information and audio examples is availble through the audio guide. For kids there are "red numbers" with adjusted content. The part I liked most was the live music demonstration. In my case it was with the flutist Florence Jacquemart. She explained various - never seen before - antique instruments and explained the early music. Last but not least there is a fantasic shop with many CDs and books at the end of your visit. Also here I found it amazing how France offers a rich set of interesting books for their children such as Raggae or Jazz explained with audio samples. Of course it would have been great to able to attend a concert in the concert hall but I didn't have tickets booked in advance.
