This is a place where you could see almost a 100 different pianos collection. From a weird shape to the smallest piano, from ordinary to a grand piano. Recommended for those who played the piano.

Even if you are not a piano buff, this place is very interesting. From big Grand Pianos to very small one, there is something for everyone. My favorite was a piano that sat in a corner! So interesting.
