How to enjoy the museum
Forest sound hall
The Mori no Oto Hall exhibits mechanical instruments such as musical box that were popular in Europe and the United States from the latter half of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century. These collections are a historical and cultural heritage that conveys the technological capabilities of the people of the time and their passion for music to the present day, and gives us a lasting impression. In addition, in the concert room on the 2nd floor, a concert by the commentary staff is held every hour, and you can actually listen to the sounds of the collection such as mechanical instruments.
