- Located on the campus of Musashino Music Academy, this gem of a museum is ideal for both music enthusiasts and for the tone-deaf, who can at least appreciate fine craftsmanship! For display purposes instruments are divided geographically into ten regions. Noteworthy amongst the collection is a Swiss Alp horn made of crystal, a Russian bassoon (circa 1820), a zarb drum from Iran, a slit drum from Zaire and extensive pieces for an Indonesian gamelan orchestra! There are also tools for making violins and the traditional Japanese stringed instrument, the shamisen. Admission: Free.
