When to Get There

The interactive exhibits can be crowded during peak hours at the House of Music, so it’s worth planning ahead to avoid the rush. For the fewest people, go on a weekday, and get there directly after the museum opens; the next-best time is at the end of the day, when visitors tend to drop off.
