Library in the mim

The mim library dates back to the beginning of the "Instrument Museum" in 1877. Today the collection is extraordinarily rich. It follows the evolution of scientific knowledge and is still steadily growing. This specialist, scientific library is open to the public and is a place of work for researchers, musicologists, students, instrument builders, guides and mim employees. But anyone with an interest in musical instruments will find a gold mine here.
