Museo organólogico

The Museo organológico de Valparaíso, an unique musical instrument museum located on 488 Ferrari street (Cerro Bellavista) a few blocks down from La Sebastiana, Neruda's house museum. It started with a CORFO semilla grant a few years ago. Indeed, it is a hidden treasure of town.
The museum houses a showcase collection of over 600 instruments. Many of them collected from old houses in town, restored and also with replicates built by its owner Fernando Ramírez (below).
