Hart House Viols

Curious about those beautiful stringed instruments on display in the Gallery's Bar Lounge? The Hart House viols are museum-quality instruments that are tuned and played regularly.

The collection of six viols is on permanent display in a glass case in the Gallery Grill restaurant on the second floor of Hart House. Each one was made by a different luthier, with the earliest one from c. 1580 in London and the most recent one from c. 1761 in Paris.
