The Danish Music Museum

In September 2014, the Danish Music Museum re-opened its unique exhibition in new premises. This unique "house of music" offers an exceptional interplay between the practising musicians and the culture-historical musical instruments.

Music Museum
The museum is now situated in the former Broadcasting House, which also houses the Royal Danish Academy of Music. These new premises make room for "Det Klingende Museum" - a new project for children and young people, permitting them to explore all kinds of musical instruments within the three main categories: classical music, rhythmic music, and traditional music.

Musical Instruments throughout 500 Years
The Danish Music Museum was founded in 1898, and the exhibition includes musical instruments from Europe, Asia, and Africa from the 16th century through the 21st century.

Library, Archives and Photo Collection
The library comprises works of and material about many of the great personalities of Danish music history - e.g. Angul Hammerich, Johan Svendsen, Aksel Schiøtz and Niels W. Gade - besides material about important Danish music institutions and organisations. Specialist literature about musical instruments, periods and sectors are found as well.
