Discover the art of musical instruments at Edinburgh University’s Musical Instrument Museum and get creative at the same time! This year, St. Cecilia’s Hall promises to be a colourful explosion that will keep people of all ages entertained. Families are invited to our Saturday daytime event and be inspired by the painted decorations of our musical instruments, create their own painted soundbox, and take part in exciting family trails! Join us on Friday or Saturday evening for an entirely new Museums at Night experience. Tours will be running half hourly taking visitors on a journey of discovery into the world of harpsichord art.
