  • Visitor Information

The Royal Academy of Music Museum, designed by John Nash in 1822 as part of the main entrance to Regent’s Park, hosts the Academy’s ‘living museum’, open to the public free of charge seven days a week.

The galleries display many fine items from the Academy's collections of rare musical instruments, original manuscripts, archives, images and other artefacts. The highlights include Cremonese stringed instruments dated between 1650 and 1740, including Stradivari’s 1696 ‘Archinto’ viola, a selection of historical English pianos from 1790 to 1850, from the famous Mobbs Collection, original manuscripts by Purcell, Mendelssohn, Liszt, Brahms, Sullivan and Vaughan Williams and other exhibits.

The museum is an integral part of Academy life: regular concerts, seminars, workshops and other events take place in the galleries, including performances and demonstrations on some of the instruments on display.
