Museums

Traditional Reed Instruments are not frequently exposed in Museums. They can be found sometime in Museums for Ethnology, sometime in Musical Instrument Museums. The following list is a selection, based partially on a personal visit (but things may have changed since!) partially on information given on the homepage. Visitors with special interest should take personal information by E-mail with the Institutions prior to a visit.
