The entrance fee is $30 CNY. You cannot take photos in the museum. It is heavily guarded. I found the museum to have very good English compared to most museums I've visited in China. However, in saying that the English descriptions doesn't tell you a lot about the history of each piano. Very few appeared to be owned or played... More

I dont play piano but I love music. I play the guitar instead. This is one of the best piano museum in the world. totally unexpected from an island. i was disappointed with gulangyu, in general. But it made me feel it was worth it because of this museum! very crowded for such a small building.

The museum is set in a beautifully designed and maintained garden by the seaside, the museum buildings are period villas - all of this creates a unique atmosphere. One can almost hear piano sounds floating on top of the waves. Highly recommended - one of the best attractions on the island.

There is a wide range of pianos in the 2 major blocks of Museum. All the pianos are well kept. Everything is displayed in a way that enables smooth flow of traffic. Descriptions are clear. A worth visiting museum on GulangYu.

If you are at all interested in music, or even just like the sight of antique pianos, you'll love this place. It is relatively small, but the collection is large. The entrance to the museum includes the whole Shuzhuang gardens setting, which was lovely (check out and have fun in the rock maze/labyrinth after the museum, try and find all... More

Small but is a nice place in GuLangYu Island. Have some interesting collection. The ticket is sold under ShuZhuang 菽庄花园. I didn't take any photo as this is prohibited (although I can see some people still do this). Avoid public holiday if possible as it could be crowded.
