It was an interesting find that there's a museum on pianos! It is not big but has a good collection of pianos from various parts of the world.

If you're looking forward to going to this museum (as I was), now may not be a good time. I was extremely disappointed that it was currently being refurbished and that they didn't tell us at the ticket hate that this was the case. We went on the 30th November so be wary, it may still be closed. We did... More

To be honest, with limited time, I went kicking and screaming (metaphorically) to the Piano Museum on Gulangyu Island.

Admission to Piano Museum is included in Shuzhuang Garden. Both are worth visiting. Great views and photo opportunity for the Shuzhuang Garden. No photos for Piano M.

You will seldom find any piano museums in Asia (and not that many in Europe or the US for that matter). This one is the equal of any of them, with pianos from various time periods and a wonderful atmosphere to match. Reasonable rates as well.

Most of the pianos are from the estate of a Chinese man who lived in Melbourne, Australia for many years. He was born on Piano Island and after his death his wife returned his collection to his place of birth
