The Musikenfête museum was founded in May 1997
after the world Folklore Festival.

The Montoire Festival was created in 1973 and takes place every year during the week of August 15.

Visit of the 1st floor

“It was with your family that you took advantage of the spring of Musikenfête to rediscover its 500 wonderful musical instruments from the most famous to the most unusual around the world.

Our visit started with the 1st floor with an open access where we were able to listen to various musical instruments thanks to audio headsets and TV’S. We were able to observe the instruments exhibited more curious than each other and especially an instrument connected to the current that played music by itself. Before going down for the guided tour we watched a video of the festival. Do you know that the museum is an extension of the Montoire festival ? ”

The ground floor

“The visit to the ground floor enchanted the children! First, we discovered a concert bell chiming from China, a copy of a 2400-year-old instrument (unique in Europe).

In a second stage, the guide explained the instruments by family and the children were able to play small melodies.

Finally the highlight of the visit,  the  musical nave directed in a magical way by André Bride. A piece of huge musical instruments that work in an unusual way: the struck, drawn or a water circuit that allows the instrument to operate.

Guaranteed wonder for children and adults!

During a visit to Musikenfête, you can become a musician for an improvisation! ”
