  • Housed in the same building as a piano outlet, this museum is a wonderful note of Virginian musicians. If you’re lucky, Mr Park will lead you through the first room and play the antique instruments...  more »
  • This museum is a delightful collection of antique instruments, history of Virginia musicians, and memorbelia. This is a good place to visit for a look at Virginia musical history.  more »

  • This place was amazing!! My family and I decided to go here and I have to admit we were a little sceptical at first. The building doesn't look that big and the owner also has a large piano store in front of the museum. We paid for the tickets and were told we were in luck because the owner was at the location and would probably be around to talk to us. We had just started looking around and the owner came in and introduced himself. He was a very nice person. You could tell he took a lot of pride in his pieces and was very happy and enthusiastic to explain some history behind them and the best part he liked to play them for you! We loved hearing the Nickelodeons play and the giant music boxes. There were so many interesting pieces that I had never seen or heard before. The self playing organ on the second floor was fantastic! If you're at all interested in music do not pass this place up!
  • Great place to go to see something different. Many unique instruments and various music boxes. There is history on the local musicians over the years. The only negative is the admission fee. $12.00 is high for some people. I almost left but I could afford the $24.00 for my wife and I. I was glad I spent the money.
