The Sound Adventure Museum
During your stay in a hotel in Auxerre, go back in time thanks to the musical instruments that have crossed the ages
A visit to a dancing rhythm
Discover a world of music with a thousand and one secrets.
The Musée de l'Aventure du Son is located in a former 17th century convent in the town of Saint-Fargeau.
The first museum was created in 1994, but it was with the help of the Conseil Général de l'Yonne that the number of instruments was increased by merging the museum with that of the Phonograph and Radio of Lanobre.
The collection you are about to discover is unique in Europe. It brings together more than 1000 pieces of music, phonographs and radios of all kinds.
During your visit, travel through the ages thanks to exceptional musical objects such as pianos and organs as well as the evolution of brands in their production.
A playful discovery
Young and old alike will enjoy observing the progress and transformation of their favourite instruments. Some have disappeared while others have been created.
To entertain you, the Sound Adventure Museum has set up various possibilities:
- On opening days, you will have the chance to see demonstrations of mechanical musical instruments.
- Children can follow the tour on digital tablets. They can even carry out a mystery investigation throughout the discovery.
