The Museum of Musical Instruments in Hamamatsu is a unique place which will be interesting not only for creative people but also for those who want to learn history, get acquainted with the culture of other countries, listen to the national music of different corners of the world and even try to perform.

Such a museum where you can not only view the exhibits but also touch them was opened in Hamamatsu during the National Music Year in 1995. The museum, which was created especially for that significant event, became the first and only state museum of musical instruments in Japan.

By the way, the choice of the place for the museum was not accidental. There, in the district of Hamamatsu, exclusive and mass production of world-class musical instruments was initiated. The quality of musical instruments is still highly valued all over the world. For example, there you will find several companies that produce unique pianos that are played in the best concert halls in Japan and beyond its borders.

Today, the museum has more than 3000 instruments from all over the world. Its director says that the aim of the museum is to get its visitors acquainted with the world culture through music, reveal all the specifics of creativity and beauty of the world.

There, apart from exploring exhibitions, you can participate in various events and activities. For instance, you can go to the hall of practical classes and try to play a musical instrument which you like under the control of a professional tutor. You may also choose to go to a lecture-concert, during which you will not only listen to different musical instruments but also learn about their variations, history and popular performers who played them.

Besides, there are fascinating «Evening Music Rooms». Usually, every meeting in those rooms is dedicated to an unusual or rare musical instrument. There you will see its modifications over time and listen to its sound.
