The Musée de la musique (Museum of Music) in Paris is a museum housing a notable collection of musical instruments.

The museum is part of the Cité de la Musique complex,  together with a large concert hall, an open-air theatre, workshops and archives. The complex is located at the Parc de la Villette, in the northern part of Paris and not far from the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie.
The Musée de la Musique houses one of the largest collections of musical instruments in the World, composed by 4,000 pieces and exposed on a floor area of 2,000 square meters.
The permanent exhibition is divided into four chronological sections, from 17th to 20th century, and a section dedicated to World music. Among the most notable instruments, there are violins by Antonio Stradivari, Guarneri del Gesù and Nicolò Amati, rare claviers, the piano belonged to Chopin, a 19th century saxophone by Adolph Sax, some of the earliest synthesizers; the galleries  also feature paintings, videos and historical documents.

The museum organizes temporary exhibitions, guided tours, seminars, workshops, daily concerts and special events, with a particular attention to children.
Several cafés and a bookshop-boutique are also available to the visitors.
The Musée de la Musique is fully accessible to people with disabilities.
