Jewels from the museum. How the music is collected

Exhibition KleNOTY from the museum presents a variety of keepsakes from the collection fond of Slovak National Museum – Music Museum. It is not an exhibition about the history of music in Slovakia, it just points out the richness of material in the museum, a significance for musical-historical research and an ability to let us not forget. This way, the “collected” music is a source of information, lesson, but also of fun.
