GemeenteMuseum Den Haag

Gemeentemuseum Den Haag has in its collection more than 3800 musical instruments, as well as a musical iconography collection comprising 3000 prints and drawings. Both collections were founded by Hague banker D.F. Scheurleer (1855-1927), who in 1880 began collecting musical instruments, music (manuscripts and early editions of sheet music), prints, drawings, paintings and a large music library containing literature on music and musical instruments.
