Braunschweig's collection of historical musical instruments is internationally renowned.
It has exceptional examples of violins, mandolins, guitars, harps and, in particular, keyboard instruments that showcase the piano-making traditions of the Braunschweig region. Wind instruments such as cornets, horns, trumpets, flutes and clarinets round off the collection, which also includes a flute that once belonged to the Prussian King Frederick II, Louis Spohr's childhood violin, a Steinway square piano (1835) and a fortepiano formerly owned by the famous pianist Clara Schumann.
