Music lover or not, you’re bound to walk away singing a satisfied tune after visiting this museum. Barcelona’s Museu de la Musica sets out to take visitors on an educational and sweet-sounding tour through the evolution of music across culture and time — and all via its on-display collection of some 500 instruments.
While exploring the museum’s exhibits, you’ll have the chance to check out one of the world’s most important collections of classic guitars, and even play some tunes yourself on various instruments via an interactive gallery. The experience is all the more rich given the themed itineraries, including one for the general public, another for youngsters, and others that are more specialized.
The Music Museum is located not far from the Torre Agbar, which isn’t located in the main tourist center. A bit of a trek by foot, the journey can easily be made by various forms of public transport. Note that the museum is free on Sundays after 3pm, and on the first Sunday of every month. It is closed on Mondays.
