Curators Circles: Musical Instruments

The Museum is home to more than 1,200 instruments, including rare objects from Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas. An integral part of the MFA’s holdings for 100 years, instruments have played an essential role in the Museum’s exhibitions, publications, and musical programming. Join noted authorities and talented musicians in a unique way. Learn about instruments from across history and from around the world through live performances, talks, and close-up viewing.

Membership contributions from Curators Circles: Musical Instruments participants directly sustain the department by providing funding for essential work that includes travel, research, and acquisitions.
