Equipped with infrared headphones, the visitor of Cité de la musique walks across the museum rooms and listens to music played on the beautiful and old instruments in front of him. The museum has 6 000 old instruments.
We recommend this museum to adults with children as it is both educating and entertaining. The Cité de la musique can be part of a great day in the large Parc de la Villette.
Paris Museum of Music is housed in one of the best contemporary buildings in Paris, designed by Christian de Portzamparc (1994 Pritzker prize winner).
