The Yale University Collection of Musical Instruments, one of the oldest collections of its kind in the United States, was established in 1900, when New Haven Symphony co-founder Morris Steinert presented the core of his extensive private collection to the University. One of four museums on campus, the Collection preserves, documents, exhibits, and interprets musical instruments as works of art and artifacts of music history. Its holdings of nearly 1000 instruments—including a collection of keyboard instruments unsurpassed in the world—are particularly strong in the area of European art music between 1550 and 1950. Housed in an 1894 Romanesque-revival building designed by William H. Allen, the Collection has presented an annual series of concerts since 1967 and contributes in many other ways to the Yale curriculum and to the cultural life of the University and to the larger community.Please view http://www.yale.edu/musicalinstruments for further information about the Collection.
