The Instrument Exhibition - Sibeliusmuseum

The Instrument Exhibition

A part of Sibelius Museum’s vast instrument collection is displayed in the updated instrument exhibition. This exhibition presents the history of the orchestra from a European and, specifically, a Finnish perspective. In the exhibition, visitors will get to know different sorts of orchestras as well as instruments that are used, or have been used e.g. in a symphony orchestra.

Sibelius Museum’s underground exhibition room, called the Organ Hall, exhibits keyboard instruments. The exhibition features – in addition to organs – a rare keyed monochord and a grand piano that once belonged to the 19th century author, poet and historian Zachris Topelius.
