For over 130 years, Schubert Club has been Minnesota’s leading performing arts organization with a reputation for presenting the world’s most prestigious musicians in recital. It has secured a prominent and distinguished reputation among musical organizations nationwide, and is one of the oldest arts organizations in the country. The Schubert Club has brought virtually all of the world's great recitalists to the Saint Paul stage including Jascha Heifetz, Arthur Rubinstein, Cecelia Bartoli, Isaac Stern, Beverly Sills, Yo-Yo Ma and Renée Fleming to name a few.

In July 2010, Minnesota chamber music organization Music in the Park Series merged with Schubert Club. Founded in 1978 by Julie Himmelstrup who continues to serve as artistic director, the Series is now part of the Schubert Club, presenting the finest chamber music ensembles from Minnesota and around the world.

The Schubert Club education programs provide students with free music lessons, present master classes, commission new works by American composers and award student scholarships through a competition program.

The Schubert Club Museum holds a world-class collection comprised of over 100 historic keyboards, hundreds of instruments from around the world and letters and manuscripts of over 100 famous composers. Admission is free and open to the public serving thousands of visitors and student groups annually.

The Museum and administrative offices are located in the historic Landmark Center in downtown Saint Paul. The building is located on the north end of Saint Paul's Rice Park that also includes the Saint Paul Hotel, Saint Paul Public Library, and Ordway Center for the Performing Arts.

The Schubert Club is also a member of Arts Partnership along with The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, The Minnesota Opera and Ordway Center.

  • We do a field trip here every year. The girls look forward to and enjoy the learning. There's always a craft to do and take home.
  • Charming little museum with extremely friendly and helpful staff (or volunteers? Hard to tell but they sure were nice.). Small - not a ton to see or hear but if you just like being in a musical space in a beautiful building you will be happy here. I wouldn’t go super far out of my way but if you’re in the neighborhood when it’s open - for sure go visit.
