Sounds from the Vaults – Chicago

A Millennial Exhibition at the Field Museum.

The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago has more than six thousand musical instruments in its collection. It’s opened its vaults and worked out a way for the public to hear them. Many have not been seen or heard in a hundred years. They are from all over the world.
