  • Who would have thought that a museum full of ‘dusty old violins’ could be so interesting!? We travelled to Cremona so I could fulfill a long-held ambition to see a Stradivavius violin in real life...

  • At first time in my life I saw real instruments by Stradivari, Amati, Guarneri and Guarneri del Gesu. I think that is a biggest collection in the world.

  • Visiting Cremona and particularly the Museum was something that I didn't necessarily have high on my hit list of Italian things to do... However... after strolling through the splendid museo, and then paying quite a small additional fee, I was treated to perhaps one of the most memorable and ethereal experiences of my life, and certainly of my travels. Lena, a violin virtuoso, played one of the museum's prized Stradivari's, for a good hour and it quite literally moved me to tears with the magnificence and splendour of it all. Truly stunning. I was fortunate to be one of just a couple of visitors that day/sitting... So it was as if she was playing just for me. And the acoustics and aesthetics of the auditorium are wonderful too. Seriously recommend anyone to go out of their way to visit and experience this.. especially if you have a remote interest in stringed instruments. And for those of you who are enthusiasts... This may very well be your paradise.
  • Wonderful place if you want to know anything about violins - absolutely fabulous. Some on display nearly 400 years old. For those who like music a must visit museum!
