Welcome to Flute Museum / Visitor Information


Flute Museum is a online exhibition of varied flutes from different continents and countries of the world. These flutes are from the personal collection of Canadian flutist Ron Korb, who has travelled around the world and collected over 250 flutes/woodwind instruments. As a visitor, you will be able to browse from the category listed on the left side of this page to see more detailed photos and descriptions of each instrument, many of which would also contain a suggested link to hear music samples. We hope to give you a comfortable, easy,  and enlightening virtual museum experience, which doesn't require any exhausting travel or expensive tickets. More importantly, you are welcome to often visit back anytime as we would continuously buid this site with more information and updates. So, how about preparing for yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee (wine is lovely, too, if you like) first? Then sit back, relax, and simply enjoy. Let's start!
