In a beautifully restored complex in Brussels, of which one part is Art Nouveau and the other, neoclassical in design, the 1100 most interesting instruments are assembled in 4 galleries, enhanced by images, text panels and sounds. In addition the mim has a concert hall, a space for workshops (for groups and by reservation only), a museum shop, a library and a rooftop restaurant, from where the breathtaking view over the city gives a unique flavour to the menu. Since May 2015, violin maker Thomas Meuwissen established a permanent workshop, freely accessible to all.
No wonder that, since its opening in 2000, the mim has become a first class cultural attraction on the Mont des Arts, with an average of 125,000 visitors per year (not including restaurant guests).
