MIM (Musical Instruments Museum) joined the Brussels museum district on the “Mont des Arts” in June 2000, a lovely new setting for this museum founded in 1877, combining Art Nouveau of the former Old England store building by Paul Saintenoy and the neoclassic style of the Guimard building.
Exceptional quality is the attribute characterizing the MIM collection of more than 7,000 instruments of all kinds and from all places. 1,200 of them are staged in a lively arrangement, full of surprises.
On the four floors of exhibits, audio and visual displays intermingle by means of infrared headsets and an interactive sound area.
The 200-seat MIM auditorium, on the 8 floor is an ideal host for conferences and lectures. Receptions can be organised in the 10th floor MIM restaurant with a magnificient panorama of Brussels.
