Xiamen Piano Museum, Xiamen

4.1
#2 of 17 in Museums in Xiamen
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."

Here is the collection of pianos from around the world and since ancient times. personally, I saw 2 pianos, the existence of which is generally not known, has been pleasantly surprised.

  • It is definitely a place for tourists, just need to be here if in Gulangyu, own't take up too much time, in any case a major attraction for this super sale island.  more »

  • If you are at all interested in music, or even just like the sight of antique pianos, you'll love this place. It is relatively small, but the collection is large. The entrance to the museum includes the whole Shuzhuang gardens setting, which was GREAT (check out the rock maze/labyrinth after the museum, try and find all the Chinese zodiac animals too!). The museum is a private collection (of a very rich piano maestro) Recommended.
  • 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.
  • good
