Pianola Museum

TIME : 2016/2/19 2:27:12

This is a very special place, crammed with pianolas from the early 1900s. The museum has around 50 of the instruments, although only a dozen are on display at any given time, as well as some 30,000 music rolls and a player pipe organ. The curator gives an hour-long (or so) guided tour and music demonstrations with great zest.

Every month, except July and August, concerts are held on the player-pianos, featuring anything from Mozart to Fats Waller and rare classical or jazz tunes composed especially for the instrument. More eclectic musical offerings include a popular tango series.
