One of the first places we visit on our trip to Dinant is the House of Mr Sax. The House of Mr Sax is a magical place dedicated to the inventor of the saxophone, Mr. Adolphe Sax.
HOUSE OF MR SAX
There is a peaceful bench located in front of Mr. Sax’s House in Dinant, adorned with a beautiful statue of the inventive genius himself. Sitting there, you’ll feel like you’re right next to the guy who invented the saxophone, an instrument that’s touched so many lives with its soulful sound.
The statue is so inspiring, it really makes you appreciate the hard work and dedication it took to create such an iconic instrument. It’s a pretty humbling experience to sit there and reflect on all the incredible music that’s been made with the saxophone.
So, if you’re in the neighbourhood, definitely stop by this bench and take a moment to pay tribute to the amazing legacy of Mr. Sax.
We had a remarkable time visiting the House of Sax with my son, Wian, even though it wasn’t initially designed for kids. We took the opportunity to explore all the features of the saxophone and learn about Adolphe Sax’s story. Although the exhibits weren’t catered to children, Wian was enthusiastic and excited, which made the experience all the more enjoyable.
We used our imaginations to make it more engaging for him, allowing him to touch replicas of the saxophone and imitate its sounds playfully. Watching him soak in the history and music of the saxophone was a delight, and it became a memorable family moment that instilled a newfound appreciation for the world of Adolphe Sax in us.
