The Music House is a collection of keyboard and other musical instruments set in this large barn-like structure. It's put together very well, and provides entertaining, educational and informative displays about historical instruments and how they developed and have been used.

Wonderfully preserved musical instruments. Not a speedy stop, as the guides are very versed in their information. Their enthusiasm for what their are doing is contagious.

What a great place...historical keyboards, and other instruments that are unusual...the admission fee is well worth it, plan to spend at least 2-3 hours there, check the website or call ahead to make sure they are open.

This museum is good for music buffs, antique buffs, history buffs, or anyone looking for a nice afternoon. We weren't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised with our visit. Our guide was very knowlegeable and went above and beyond to share this history. Ask for your AAA discount.
