What a fun and unconventional museum. We stumbled on it by chance while exploring the eye-popping Landmark Center. In addition to historic keyboards and sound machines, there are Indonesion gamelons & gongs, and a fantastic "musical instrument cyclone" which reminded me of the guitar sculpture at the EMP in Seattle. It's very interactive and kid-friendly. You are invited to gong... More

Although the museum is not too big. If u love music and all kind of instruments. I think that's interesting place to visit. Even I am not familiar, I also found very interesting to learn these.There are few pieces of pianos that u can try. The museum ladies there are really friendly and helpful. They take time to explain to... More

As a music lover, I thought I would love this museum, but it's really not worth a trip from anywhere. They tell you you're allowed to play certain pianos and harpsichords, but my husband was scolded for "banging on the keys" of a harpsichord. If the harpsichord is temperamental or requires a certain light touch, maybe a card with instructions... More

This happened to be open when I was wandering through the Landmark Center so I stopped in to take a look. I'm glad I did. The attendant was just starting a tour and invited me along. They have an extensive collection of musical instruments dating back several centuries. There is also a section of old phonographic machines (before vinyl discs)... More

This is above all, since it is in the basement of the Landmark Center, a prime spot to ride out a tornado. they also have some old pianos on hand.

The Schubert Club Museum of Musical Instruments is tucked away in a series of rooms on the second floor of the Landmark Building in downtown Saint Paul. My husband and I visited it this month, and we would not have known it was there without going inside the building. We're so glad we didn't miss it! The guides are all... More

Allen gave me a guided tour through the collection. A very nice compendium of musical instruments with links to mid-west history. Modern technology is integrated into the exhibits so guests can hear the sounds of the instruments. Recitals by top notch musicians are given here.
