Giant Guitar

Not only is it possible to play the giant guitar – you can also crawl inside it!
Pluck one of its strings. What do you feel? Use your hands to feel the sound’s vibrations on the walls of the guitar.
The hollow wooden body enhances the sound of the instrument. Count the guitar strings! The giant guitar is a replica of a very old guitar and therefore only has five strings.

You can find more musical instruments in the Musical Instruments Exhibition.
