Bate Collection

Based at the University of Oxford’s Faculty of Music, the Bate Collection offers visitors the chance to explore the history of Western Classical music – by examining the hundreds of instruments on display (all of which are available for use by musical students at the university). With a collection spanning the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, and Romantic traditions, the museum caters for those interested in history, and the evolution of instruments over time. The museum hosts regular ‘family fun days’ with events including gallery trails, and chances to play some of the instruments on display.
