Poznan's Museum of Musical Instruments is the first of its kind in Poland and only the third in Europe, as it was established in 1945-6. This is not only the place to go if you want to know what a phonofiddle or a jazz violin looks like, but also if you appreciate applied arts or elaborately decorated objects. The museum's co-founder and first curator, Zdzislaw Szulc, was a collector and musical instrument specialist, and many of the instruments come from his collection. The exhibits are divided by sections, including a room of music boxes and gramophones, as well as rooms of pianos and organs, horns, winds, percussion instruments, guitars and string instruments, and a floor of folk instruments from different ages and cultures, from African drums to European folk violins and accordions.
