Collection of Ancient Instruments
The exhibited string, wind and keyboard instruments were not only treasured for their beautiful sound but also for their looks: the highly artistic instruments – especially the collection from the Renaissance era – mirror the splendor of the Habsburg empire. One acoustic highlight is the only original recording of the Johann Strauss Orchestra in the world.
The Collection of Ancient Instruments will be closed from Oct. 2, 2017 to summer 2018!
