The province of Valladolid, just two hours drive from Madrid, offers countless activities and experiences for a few days getaway or for several trips. But as "countless" I would have created a list that I could not handle or Santa Claus (which, it is assumed, has targeted all the children in the world with the note of whether they have been good or bad) I have had to reach a compromise solution and write about 10 essential visits and experiences in the province of Valladolid.

This is the second part, because a single article fell short, of ten recommended visits in Valladolid, or experiences that I can recommend first hand because I made them. Enjoy them!

6.- Listen to how traditional musical instruments sound in the Paco Díez Museum Classroom (Mucientes)

Guided tour with Paco Díez, Paco Díez Museum Classroom in Mucientes (Valladolid)

Who doesn't unconsciously move his head to the rhythm of a catchy melody? The human being carries the need for music in his genes since Prehistory, and some of the hundreds of instruments that we can see and hear on a visit to the Paco Díez Classroom-Museum are almost from Prehistory.

Four are the possible sources of sound for an instrument to emit music and based on it the rooms of the Museum are organized. Idiophones, Cordophones, Aerophones, and Membranophones.

An exhibition of musical instruments would not be complete without the auditory element. Although one can tour the museum by reading the descriptions of the objects in the showcases, they take on an additional life, the one for which they were created, when Paco Díez himself shows in a practical way how they are held and used.

Visits, always by appointment or on Sundays at 12 - prior confirmation - are organized for individuals and groups. In addition, cycles of concerts of World Music, dance or summer concerts are held throughout the year.
