Where to find information about and see actual instruments is a common question - there are a great number of museums throughout the World but which are the ones have bagpipes on show. The following is a selection and covers the ones that I personally know am aware of. Please feel to let me know of the many others that exist so that they can be added to the list - preferably with a brief description and if possible photos of exhibits, availability of catalogues, plans etc. so they can be added to this section with acknowledgements.
