Xiamen Piano Museum, Xiamen

#1 of 17 in Museums in Xiamen
Specialty Museum Museum
Learn about the history of the instrument and its relevance to the local culture at Xiamen Piano Museum, a two-story building within a wider garden and cultural complex. The building itself looks like a quirky take on a piano, with the white beamed conservatory at the front representing keys, and the sloped roof the body. The collection of over 100 pianos includes a French barrel piano, a grand piano that once sat in a British palace, as well as a very confusing corner piano. Listen to piano music as you go through the exhibit, learning about the instruments themselves as well as the island, often nicknamed "Piano Island."

  • You can find some of the most unique and rarest pianos. I enjoyed the walk in the museum- such an eye opener.  more »
  • The museum has the most extraordinary piano collection, from the ancient to the contemporary. Some are rare and some are weird. An eye opener for me.  more »
  • Located on Gulongyu Island, the museum is an interesting place to visit, but wouldn't go to the island just for the museum. Fortunately, there are many other things to see on Gulongyu Island  more »

  • I was surprised to see a Piano Museum in Gu Lang Yu island. They have a moderate collection. Though it's small yet it will be nice if there is an English speaking curator available.
