Geelvinck Pianola Museum Amsterdam
Discover the Amsterdam music scene during the Roaring Twenties
The Geelvinck Pianola Museum possibly is the most cute museum in Amsterdam: you step back into the Roaring Twenties. Discover the stories of the piano and the so-called pianola, the self-playing piano from the early 20th century. You see and hear the piano performance reproduced as if the ghost of the pianist of a century ago is actually playing. The museum boosts a collection of over 30.000 historic pianola rolls, one of the largest in the world.
