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

This has not just Asia's largest but one of the world's largest collections of antique pianos, piano lamps, etc., all donated by an Australian Chinese. They will often demonstrate one of the player pianos, and play the "Gulangyu Song" on a grand piano in the second hall. The gardens outside are also beautiful, with a nice seaview. The only thing...

There're so many kinds of piano that are very hard to see. (Rare) Don't miss the piano show (a few of them)

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.

I am a piano player, so it is inconceivable that I would not love a collection of pianos like this. There was signage in Mandarin and English on just about everything. 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.
