Children and teenagers

5 to 8 year-olds

Instrument families
The flute and the trumpet are most certainly wind instruments. But how do you make a sound? Just blowing isn't enough! And why is it that the sound changes when you cover the holes or push the pistons? What are the different ways to make a chord vibrate and how can you alter the resulting musical note? The instrument families invite you to come and make your own experiments with sound.

Peter and the Wolf
Peter is a very brave boy, so brave that he's even not afraid of a wolf. Even so, his grandfather has warned him: "Be careful, my boy!". But Peter has some friends: the duck, the cat and the bird who will perhaps help him to catch the wolf... After listening to the story in class, you'll discover at the mim how animals and characters can become musical instruments

Special offer: Discover the orchestra (5-year-old children only)

During these musical mornings, the mim, associated with the Belgian National Orchestra, takes the children on an unforgettable journey into the world of the orchestra. At the museum, children will discover the instruments. How do you play the violin? What is the difference with the cello? How does the horn sound? Do instruments have a compulsory place in the orchestra? But that's not all: the children can also step into the shoes of a musician and play, together, under the direction of a conductor. After this interactive introduction to the instruments of the orchestra, the children can attend a part of the rehearsal of the BNO, one of the most iconic orchestras of the country. More info

8-12 year-olds

Discovery tour
The ideal way to discover the museum during your first visit! Throughout the tour, the families of instruments reveal themselves to you: harp, violoncello, trombone and xylophone are hiding in the most secret corners of the museum. All they want is for you to come and find them and enter into their world.

10-12 year-olds

Orchestral instruments
There are a multitude of instruments in an orchestra: violins, flutes, trumpets, etc... You've probably seen them all already, but have you really listened to them? It's not easy to hear the difference between an oboe and a bassoon, between a trombone and a trumpet when they're all playing at the same time! Some are in front, and some are behind but there's nothing chaotic about an orchestra. Everything is aligned, just like music paper...

12-18 year-olds

Discovery tour
Discover not only the instruments, but also how to manage and look after them: why does an instrument enter the museum and how does one manage such a collection?
