During May Half-TermĀ (29th May - 3rd June), the Museum is open Monday - Sat

This is a pipa, a Chinese musical instrument, on display in our Explorers gallery. It is one of China's oldest instruments made from gut and while it is a lute, it’s played like a guitar. This one was collected by Charles Paget-Blake while in China.
