The RCM Museum of Music preserves and displays an internationally renowned collection of more than 1,500 items including musical instruments, portraits, sculptures, photographs and engravings related to music.

Highlights include a clavicytherium (an upright harpsichord) dated c 1480, believed to be the earliest surviving stringed keyboard instrument, the earliest dated guitar (Belchior Dias, 1581), the earliest baryton (1647), and one of the most important collections of English viols on public display.

Many of the instruments in the collection are in playing condition and can be heard during Museum concerts and events or during guided tours.

The Museum hosts events for all ages, including hands on workshops for children, and arranges visits for those with special requirements. For more information, please see our website.
