Expert review of Pianola Museum
This one-room museum in the heart of the Jordaan is a real charmer. A learned, elderly gentleman in a corduroy jacket demonstrates how some of his lovingly restored, early 20th-century mechanical pianos work. He plays a small selection of the perforated musical rolls (including works by Mendelssohn and Grieg when I visited) from his 25,000-strong selection, and shows how you can affect the tempo with hand controls and foot pedals, and answers questions (in fluent English) about how everything works.
5 euros; over 65s 4 euros; children 3 euros.
