Many interesting pianos, but be prepared to "climb the mountain" to get to it. 30-rmb gets you in the door and then a bit of a hike up the side of a hill...a difficult feat in the hot Xiamen sun. At the entrance you'll hear a player piano...after that, no ambiance. Enjoyable however.

My only criticism would be the inability to take pictures and the absence of a gift shop where you could buy something that had pictures of these pianos. There... More

Strange pianos are shown, interesting to people who loves piano. One of the piano is L-shaped, some pianos are very old.

You have a chance to see a variety of piano here. Xiamen happened to be one of the cities that became westernized in early days.
