This museum should be amazing and it has a fantastic collection. However the displays are oddly arranged, crowded and unpleasant to look at (for the Japanese aesthetic) -- they also result, therefore, in dreadful photos. It's a shame because this could be done so much better.

An amazing collection of instruments from around the world. Allow at least 2 hours to look around and to also play on the selection of keyboards (and a drum kit) that are provided for this purpose. Many items are labelled only in Japanese so if you don't speak the language you can use Google lens on your smartphone to identify and understand what each exhibit is. There is a small gift shop on your right as you exit the exhibition space.

Great museum divided by geographic area and covering the whole world. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

At first, this museum seemed small; I wasn't super impressed when I first walked in. Next thing I knew, we had been there for 3 hours! There is a really impressive collection of old and obscure instruments, and the interactive room was fun even for adults. This is a must-visit for anyone who has played a musical instrument.

Nice.. be careful yo may want to buy a musical instrument shortly afterward. Try the play room, there are musical instruments you can really touch when you feel desperately want to play..
