Musical Instruments Museum

The Musical Instruments Museum (also known as the ‘mim’) has recognised the scientific character of its activities and provided it with several sections: the section of early music and the section of modern music (19th and 20th centuries), and popular and traditional music.

From the street in front of the museum, you can see a beautiful view of Brussels city center, including the city hall tower in Grand Place.
