MIM - Musical Instruments Museum presents Stradivarius: Origins and Legacy of the Greatest Violin Maker

Presented Exclusively at the Musical Instrument Museum
 
Stradivarius: Origins and Legacy of the Greatest Violin Maker 
 
In partnership with 
Museo del Violino and Friends of Stradivari 
 
On view now through June 5, 2016
 
Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of perfection. Only at the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) will visitors to Stradivarius: Origins and Legacy of the Greatest Violin Maker be able to discover the history of the violin as never before. These timeless masterpieces were handcrafted by Cremonese master luthiers, including Andrea Amati, the founding father of the violin; the rogue genius Guarneri del Gesù; and, of course, the maestro himself—Antonio Stradivari.
 
Visitors to this special exhibition will have a rare opportunity to see these one-of-a-kind treasures, many of which have been valued for millions of dollars. In addition to these exceptional instruments, MIM will showcase precious artifacts, including a selection of tools and designs from the workshop of Antonio Stradivari, which have seldom been displayed outside of the master violin maker’s hometown of Cremona, Italy. 
To complete the Italian experience, MIM will have an “Experience Italy” weekend June 4th and 5th  to celebrate the master craftsman of Cremona, Italy.
