I played the piano competitively so maybe I'm biased, but I loved this museum! It had quite a few interesting pianos to see - even one that fit into a corner (!!) and it's small enough not to bore normal people. Also it's in the most expansive park on the island so generally the full experience is worth it.

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.

The interesting array of pianos was worth seeing even if one doesn't play. The pianos that have sconces on the sides, were interesting, for anyone who does woodworking it is worth a look, you have to hold back and not want to play a key or two.

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

As a music fan, it was nice to see the vast collection of old, antique pianos. The exhibition contained several unique pianos and the building had an excellent overview of the sea. Admission is included in the Shuzhuang Garden ticket, which costs 30 RMB. Definitely worth the price of admission.

To be honest, with limited time, I went kicking and screaming (metaphorically) to the Piano Museum on Gulangyu Island. Strangely it was a really worthwhile visit - maybe because there was an Australian connection! But in reality it is unique exhibition of pianos. It is housed in a building overlooking a large part of the island, two buildings with over... More

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.
