Discover musical instruments from the UK’s museums

Royal College of Music Museum

The MINIM-UK project saw over 20,000 historic instruments from national museums such as the British Museum, V&A and Science Museum digitised and gathered into a database by specialist cataloguers. To allow the general public to explore and engage with this unprecedented collection The Royal College of Music, together with partner organisations, commissioned Surface Impression to develop a user-focused web interface.

The project was supported by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) in 2015 and has been led by the Royal College of Music in partnership with Edinburgh University, the Horniman Museum and Gardens and the Royal Academy of Music, supported by Google Arts and Culture
