Collection of Ancient Instruments
The stringed, wind and keyboard instruments were a delight not only to the ears but also to the eyes, even in imperial times: The extremely artistically made instruments - the collection from the Renaissance period is especially significant - reflect the splendor of the Habsburg Empire.
In an extra room, visitors receive additional information at interactive terminals. And in a shielded room, playable copies of historic instruments are available, inviting you to make music. Concerts at which master interpreters of their profession play the original instruments are held on a regular basis.
