The family collection
Dynamic visit to the permanent exhibition of the Museum in which we will discover the particularities of the instruments based on how they produce the sound. Why do a clarinet and an oboe sound different? What does a flute and an organ have in common? Why is the claw clinging with two hands and the guitar with only one? Do you want to find a new meaning in words such as timbre, record, leap, bridge, key or gauntlet? An experience accompanied by musical illustrations by the musician guide.
