We spent a good two hours touring this lovely museum. The exhibits are very well displayed and the English audio guide was excellent, especially the short music clips to expand on the information provided. Very well worth our time.

This is near the Towers in Bologna. It is housed in an historic, grand building. They offer an audio guide for 4 euros in addition to the entry cost of 5 euros. Worth it though to get a real insight into the exhibition. The exhibits...More

This is one of the best music museums I have visited. It's quite small but has an outstanding collection of original manuscripts, instruments and oil paintings. The one of Vivaldi is mesmerising.

Visited here with my wife. Really fascinating. Most of the descriptions are in Italian or little English but still enjoyable otherwise. It is well worth a visit if you are in Bologna!
