One of the most popular museums in Brussels, the Musical Instrument Museum (shortened to MIM) is situated in a beautiful Art Nouveau style building called Old England.

Visitors can enjoy a beautiful audio experience on their visit to the museum. Instead of just reading about the various instruments the museum is home to, visitors can listen to short pieces by each instrument. Want to know what African drums or the Jewish Harp sound like? Just stand in a designated spot in front of the instrument and the music will be wirelessly transported to your headphones.

The museum is home to over 7000 musical instruments, making it one of the largest museums dedicated to musical instruments in the world. There are explanations of all musical instruments in French, Dutch, Spanish, German and English.

There is also a museum shop on the third floor from where you can buy books, CD’s and other souvenirs related to the museum. Once you are done with your visit to the museum you can enjoy a cup of coffee and a bite in the open air patio café on the premises of the museum.

  • Opening Closing Time 9:30 am to 5pm (Tuesday to Friday), 10 am to 5 pm (Saturday and Sunday)
