Musashino Music College Musical Instruments Museum

Located on the campus of Musashino Music Academy, this gem of a museum is ideal for both music enthusiasts and for the tone-deaf, who can appreciate fine craftsmanship! For display purposes, instruments are divided geographically into ten regions. Noteworthy among the collection is a Swiss Alp horn made of crystal, a Russian bassoon (circa 1820), a zarb drum from Iran, a slit drum from Zaire and extensive pieces for an Indonesian gamelan orchestra. There are also tools for making violins and the traditional Japanese stringed instrument, the shamisen.
