Museum offers visitors a 'hands on' approach to developing an appreciation of the sound of music

Tony Dale, educational co-ordinator at the Stradivarium museum of music and sound in Bristol, tuning the world's largest guitar at the Exploratory, a scientific exhibition. The guitar took Mr Dale and four colleagues more than three months to construct, and access through a hole in the rear allows visitors to explore the inside of the instrument while it is being played.
