What a great little museum! And it's free. Being a musician I found it fascinating and loved looking at all the instruments. Grateful that a helpful student was on hand to play the pianos so I could hear them too.

Given the price of some attractions (and the length of the queues for them) the RAM's music museum is a lovely antidote to all that commercialism. Ranged over three floors, you can see the development of musical instruments and learn about the RAM itself. It's...More

I am interested in music and instruments but this museum did not really interest me. There was a very small exhibition about Yehudi Menuhin but it was not very informative. The first floor contained a few string instruments and the second floor was not open...More

Dear Madeleine, Thank you for your review. We value our visitors’ feedback. As a working University Museum our galleries are often used for classes and events. The Piano Gallery was closed on the day you visited as we were hosting a conference on the ‘Historical...More
