Dr. Ueli Halder assembled a collection of around 300 historical flutes, cf. their website Flautorama

He died on 6 January 2021. As he wished, his collection will be on permanent loan to the Klingendes Museum. The instruments will be maintained in his spirit and will be available to interested musicians as before and FLAUTORAMA will also remain online.

Collaboration with BKMV

The Bernischer Kantonal-Musikverband supports the Sounding Museum, which documents the history of wind band music so well. In return, all BKMV associations are offered guided tours at a special price of 200 – 300 CHF (depending on the size of the group).

Please contact Adrian v. Steiger by e-mail for appointments. Guided tours preferably before or after our opening hours.
