This free museum is great for music lovers. They have historic keyboard instruments (mainly pianos, but a harpsichord and pump organ were also on display), some of which you can play. Other exhibits rotate, but I've seen historic music boxes and phonographs, a gamelan and an exhibit about brass instruments (including instruments you can play). Since it's free and very... More

Another wonderful attraction in the Landmark Center, the Schubert Club is an important MN Cultural Institution in sponsoring world class recitals, collecting documents of composers, and housing a marvelous collection of instruments. Well worth a stop if you are at all musically inclined/curious about keyboards in particular.

I am not a pianist but this was still very interesting. I wished we had been able to enjoy without the tour group in front of us. You can hear what these old pianos sound like but it was disturbing the tour so we only heard a couple of the pianos. Still Very interesting, especially the letters by famous pianists.

This interactive is great for all those who want to compare different pianos and clavichords to each other. Because not only you can see them but you can play on every single one located in this museum. It was a treat for my sister. She is a piano teacher and I couldn't take her out from there...

This a very small museum with some gorgeous antique pianos and harpsichords. It was nice that they had some you could actually play and hear their sound. My wife really enjoyed the letter catalog. And as a former band member the instrument tornado was fun to look at.

I've lived in the Twin Cities for almost 40 years and just learned about the Schubert Club Museum. This small museum is located in the Landmark Center just across from Rice Park and the Ordway. They have a very interesting collection of keyboard instruments and also some original manuscripts from famous musicians-Mozart, Gershwin et. al. The exhibits include a timeline... More

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
