Musical Instruments at the Met

Recently I went to see musical instruments section at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which I thought I would enjoy, but instead I had a same feeling I had when I went to the zoo. The instruments were trapped in this dark hall just like the animals in cages – longing to roam free. I could almost hear them scream to be played but instead were sitting there slowly falling apart. There were very few people in the section – it is located so that it is not easy to just stumble into, and probably the gloomy mood of this room keeps the regulars out.
