A charming, offbeat little museum. Felt transported back in time by the instrument demos and interesting stories provided by our lovely tour guide. A couple of the instruments were out of commission/undergoing conservation, but there was still plenty to see and hear on the tour -- if I were local, I'd pay another visit to hear the rest. Highly recommend if you have 2 hours to spare.
Each location, at the end, has an instrument which you can try out for yourself, super fun! We got to try out a mandolin, a steel slid on a specially tuned guitar, an electric guitar, followed by a room with so many kinds of unique instruments (the funniest being a musical antenna with very strange sounds). You will thoroughly enjoy this place. Come visit if in the area!
