At the corner of the Place Royale and the Rue de la Montagne de la Cour is the turn-of-the-century department store, Old England, an exceptional example of the Art Nouveau style by architect Paul Saintenoy. The stylish home of the Musical Instruments Museum houses a collection of ancient and rare instruments from all over the world. The museum, however, breaks with the tradition of simply creating a static depository for antique objects. It  operates as a new kind of modern music center, a working and learning space for music specialists, performers, researchers, children and students. MIM - Musical Instruments Museum, 2 rue Montagne de la Cour, 1000 Brussels. For more information call: (32 2) 545-0130 or fax (32 2) 545-0178 or visit their website.
