This is a sweet museum with very interesting music related items and instruments from around the world. You'll enjoy this Museum. They often have special events and activities, too. Check it out! It's right near the Grand Traverse Hotel in Acme, near Traverse City.

Huge organs. You wouldn't believe that these powerful instruments are sitting in an old well-kept barn in Northern Michigan!

Even though a friend had raved about it, our expectations were exceeded. We got a great private do to the luck of the timing of our visit so I am guessing that our experience was a bit unusual in that respect...if you like music history this is a must see.

The Music House is a place like no other. There are music machines from all over the world and many will amaze you. You will be taken on a guided tour and allowed to hear the music and see the movements of the machine. They are well cared for and well lit. This is a treasure. Don't miss it.

This is a classical music buff paridise. There is a guided tour you are taken on with a group of other people. Shows historical instruments from long ago. Most like a museum and items are behind glass. We thought it was definitely over priced (in our opinion) and probably would not return.
