"This is a MUST !" Top 5 Page for this destination Ringve Music Museum and botanical garden Tip by globetrott

The museum for musical instruments in the Ringve manor-house is really worth seeing: A lady from Russia had married a rich norwegian merchant and she started tocollect musical instruments from all over the world.
there are 2 parts in this museum :
1) in a former barn they show musical instruments and there you are also allowed totake photographs as long as you dont unse a flash.
2) The farmhouse have different rooms that are decorated according to the times of special composers like Beethoven, Chopin etc. In this part of the museum photography is totally forbidden and the guides will play on various instruments while taking you on a guided tour through this part of the museum.
