ONe of a kind place. Great to see the old organs working. Nice to be able to hear what they sound like. Great educational place.

Wonderfully preserved musical instruments. Not a speedy stop, as the guides are very versed in their information. Their enthusiasm for what their are doing is contagious.

“A step back in Musical Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

What a great place...historical keyboards, and other instruments that are unusual...the admission fee is well worth it, plan to spend at least 2-3 hours there, check the website or call ahead to make sure they are open.

“Very interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

This museum is good for music buffs, antique buffs, history buffs, or anyone looking for a nice afternoon. We weren't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised with our visit. Our guide was very knowlegeable and went above and beyond to share this history. Ask for your AAA discount.
