An amazing place, I hope to get there some time. They seem to get more stuff frequently. They have one of the two known Stradivari mandolins, for instance and other priceless instruments.

A nice promotional piece for the museum. I do hope to visit someday. Here in NYC, the Met has a great instrument collection, but they have been rather stodgy in how they exhibit it. I should take a look and see if things have changed at all.

Things at the Met may change, at least temporarily, with the upcoming Guitar Heroes exhibit, but they do have limited space. I think they have upwards of 3000 instruments in the downstairs/back rooms which most folks never see.
