The Danish Music Museum was founded in 1898. The exhibition includes musical instruments from Europe, Asia and Africa dating from the Bronze Age until the 21st century. In 2014 the museum reopened with a brand new exhibition at its new location on Rosenørns allé.
The collections include an extensive library, archives and a photo collection. Click for hours.
The library contains works by and material about many of the great figures of Danish musical history - e.g. Angul Hammerich, Johan Svendsen, Aksel Schiøtz and Niels W. Gade - as well as material relating to important Danish music institutions and organisations. There is also specialist literature about musical instruments, periods and various other musical subjects.
