Conceived as a dynamic and constantly expanding space, MVIM is dedicated to preserving the memory of musical instruments, fundamental sources for understanding the History of Music.
In a 21st century environment, aimed at a wide audience, the instruments and their surroundings are presented in specific sections.
The MVIM catalogue is growing!! Now, in addition to musical instruments from the Museu Delgado de Carvalho – Escola de Música da UFRJ [Delgado de Carvalho Museum – UFRJ School of Music], there are also percussion instruments from the Museu Villa-Lobos [Villa-Lobos Museum] and, soon, instruments from the Instituto Moreira Salles [Moreira Salles Institute].
In the Instruments menu, it is possible to search in the entire collection; a search by category; or even a search by combining fields, using the advanced search. The items in the collection are presented through detailed information including photos, audios and videos.
