In September 2014, the Danish Music Museum re-opened its unique exhibition in new premises at Rosenørns allé 22, Frederiksberg C.Åbningstider
The new premises are situated in the former Broadcasting House, which also houses the Royal Danish Academy of Music. In future, this unique "house of music" will offer an exceptional interplay between the practising musicians and the culture-historical musical instruments.
Besides, the new premises make room for "Det Klingende Museum" - a new project for children and young people, permitting them to explore all kinds of musical instruments within the three main categories: classical music, rhythmic music, and traditional music.
Musical Instruments throughout 500 Years
The Danish Music Museum was founded in 1898, and the exhibition includes musical instruments from Europe, Asia, and Africa from the 16th century through the 21st century.
Some of the beautiful instruments can also be seen at Historical Knowledge - Themes - Musik.
Library, Archives and Photo Collection
The collections include an extensive library, archives and a picture collection. Please, Clic for hours.

Gade - besides material about important Danish music institutions and organisations. Specialist literature about musical instruments, periods and sectors are found as well.
