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

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.
