Xiamen Piano Museum, Xiamen

4.1
#1 of 20 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."

  • Probably the best museum on the island, in my opinion. Very interesting items on display
  • 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
  • Remember that there are two museums, on a rainy day do not waste your rain parachute set, the average person is to go first into the middle of the sea twists and turns bridge Liang feel the scenery of the surprise scandalous wave, if the wind calm can also stay in the small pavilion, feel the boat to the boat, the wind Jing Funjing is the sea wind and urban background of each other, it is strange to let the heart become God Yi, it is easy to shen amyloid the mind Located in the highest point of Shu, into the inside, you can put about hundreds of antique piano, there are Steinway, there are Posendorf, listen to some people introduce all kinds of piano, talk about each piano history or characteristics, unfortunately this time did not meet. From the 18 century, the need to hang oil lights, point crayons candlelight of the European piano, Japanese mini harp, two directions of the piano, all kinds of shapes, different tones of the classical famous piano, very worthy of music music visitors attentively and Gulang Lantau the atmosphere of the match, full of art and romantic atmosphere. After the natural scenery is the cultural fumigation, stroll through the Shu garden after the sea scenery, you can enjoy the cold air, appreciate the masses of the well-preserved antique piano. Because of the high and low position of the building, the movement is relatively special. In the quiet place, see a lot of beautiful shape, a long history of the piano, there is a chance to stay on the island for a night, feel the beauty of the night light. The Xiamen Museum is located in the southern part of Gulang Lantau Island, Xiamen, Fujian province, facing the sea and leaning against the solar rocks. Built in 1913, originally a local name Gentleman Lin Private Villa, park owner with his word "Uncle Zang" Harmony Voice named Garden, 1955 as a park. With a total of 1.78 square kilometers of Gulang Lantau (only half of the size of Sentosa), it has such a "unique country", and this "only" is a range of elegant art payroll, with Gulang Lantau elegant cultural atmosphere is mixed and harmony. Take the thousand posture to describe the piano in the museum, or there is a boastful of the suspicion, but let the audience with the Chen List of the piano nearly 200 years of the performance of the process, it is not a bit of boastful. Of the 30 ancient piano, the largest of the "century" is the 19 century at the beginning of the Corporal Dunke of the company (Clementik companies) made of the piano, so far the age is nearly 200 years old. The other more than 20 are also in the 19 century Europe and North America produced a number of piano, the "century" the youngest of the 20 century at the beginning of the United States, will also be nearly 100 years old. These guqin style, design is a piano, and are made very fine delicate, the body of the flower tattoo and ink pen painting a kind of greasy beauty, it is the year of the piano teacher with a knife and a knife carving the results, each piano is a handmade fine boutique. (a). The wonderful music played by the ancient piano was art, and the ancient piano itself, even if it was "a sound," was a piece of art.
