Sammlung alter Musikinstrumente, Saal XIV. - collection of old musical instruments

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.
