We had a group go for my birthday. It was interesting for all. They played many of the music boxes (some quite large). Also, the house is filled with many other unique things. Each room of this large home had many things of interest. It is best to go seeing no pictures and be surprised at all the unusual features.... More

The Bayernhof Music Museum gives a whole new meaning to Eccentric. Another hidden surprise in Pittsburgh. The music boxes are quite remarkable and lovely to listen to. But it is the other collectibles that catch your eye. Every surface is covered, as the owner clearly loved his kitsch. The house has hidden passage ways, a cave, in door swimming pool... More

Very eclectic, interesting collection of music "boxes". Really cool if you are into music. Even non-music lovers will enjoy learning about the eccentric owner with his unique home, friends and lifestyle.

If you like quirky places and old music machines, this is the place to see. You must call for reservations though so don't plan on just stopping in. John is a great docent. You won't be disappointed.

It's amazing that this is a hidden gem. It is a must see for the Pittsburgh area. It is set back in a residential neighborhood. The original owner was excentric but has a great collection of musical machines.

We were a small group and were taken around to all the rooms and given a history of all the musical instruments and a history of each room of the beautiful house. The view is incredible and it was so interesting to hear and see the entire museum.

This guy was living the life for sure. We didn't know we needed reservations and just showed up. The groups were all full but they were nice enough to still let us go. This is a must do. Please make sure to reserve a spot.

This older home is an intriguing repository for an impressive collection of old mechanical musical instruments: disc music boxes, band organs, player pianos, calliopes. Secret passageways and tunnels add to the intrigue.

Date of visit is a guess. Saw an ad for the museum and was intrigued with the idea of the musical displays. Very interesting tour and talk about the house turned museum with its indoor pool and hidden passages and of course the collection of stuff.
