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.
