The Museum of Musical Instruments at Brussels, Belgium, spread across 4 floors, is perhaps the most elaborate museum on musical instruments I have ever seen and hence a must visit for the music lovers/ connoisseurs. Although, I do not fall into any of those music lovers or connoisseurs category, I was also intrigued by their vast collection. It not only had the standard instruments on display but also instruments that I had never seen before in my life, including some musical instruments from China. There was also a brief history about each instrument written and narrated through the audio guide.

Of course, thanks to Andrew Saxon (from Dinant) the museum had an entire dedicated to Saxophone with a brief history of Andrew Saxon and his life and an endless display of saxophones.

The museum also had some paintings/ illustrations related to music.
