NOTE: Due to the NMM's expansion project (read more about this exciting project here!) we are not currently able to address research inquiries.

Our web resources should put the general user on the path to fascinating, new knowledge about musical instruments. If you’re looking for information about an instrument you own or discovered, do check first the section My Instrument FAQ.

If you are a professional or advanced student, needing to learn more about the NMM’s collections, please review here the extent to which we might be able to help, and what our services, fees, and conditions of use may be.
