Exposition of Czech Museum of Music wants to introduce musical instruments not only as remarkable proofs of workmanlike and artistic skills, but as primary mediator between human and music.
While Milan Cais music being played the headquarter of a guide reminds 4 elements of diversity of pop music of 20th century how it was retained by movie, television, photography and sound recordings. Later you enter more intimate rooms dedicated to the ages when humans had to manufacture the instrument so they could enjoy music experiences. You go through the history and you learn how individual types of instruments actually can make sounds, how the musical notation of individual instrument looked like and for what social events they were used. This impression is enhanced by the architectural design of the exposition, dynamic application of light and sound.
