mim catalogue



Our collection is accessible online via Carmentis, the catalogue of the Royal Museums of Art and History.  If you only want to consult Carmentis' mim catalogue, go to the heading "Extended search" and select "Musical instruments collection" in the "Collection" menu.


MIMO or Musical Instrument Museums Online provides online access to the collections of eleven of Europe's musical instruments museums, including the mim. For the mim, MIMO draws on Carmentis. MIMO currently provides information about some 45,000 musical instruments in seven European languages. Via MIMO you can listen to sound recordings of some 50 mim objects.


The Europeana project aims to facilitate the digital exchange of information about our cultural heritage in European libraries, archives and museums. MIMO is part of Europeana.
