“The museums involved in this project are all contributors to MIMO and this gives them a fantastic opportunity to showcase some of the amazing pieces that are in their collections, from the rare, to the beautiful to the weird and wonderful. For the user, we hope that the exhibition serves as an introduction to the fascinating world of musical instruments and one which will perhaps lead them to visit the museums and see the actual instruments” Norman Rodger, MIMO project manager.
