St. Gilgen Museum of Musical Instruments
In the Music Instrument Museum in St. Gilgen you can experience 2000 different music instruments from various countries and cultures.
Music instrumentes give wings to human feelings. They give noise to the senses and enable us to be aware of feelings which otherwise remain deeply concealed in the soul. Theses are the exlusive emotions for which we have no word to express to ourselves or others.
How different the music of the peoples from around the globe with its won special sound and message is!
The international Musical-Instrument Museum of St. Gilgen invites you to partake in a unique musical journey around the world.
You will experience foreign countries, landscapes, peoples and their music steeped in customs and cultures.
Here the instruments are not only to be seen, you can listen to them being played. You can experience all this in guided tours especially arranged for individual groups.
To make that an unforgettable experience we have arranged short recitals, improvisation circles and an intimate evening programme.
