Small, unique little museum in Jordaan. I thought my youngest daughter, 17 and a music lover, would really enjoy and she did, in fact we all did. The gentleman who took us around was very pleasant and demonstrated all the pianola's for us. If you...More

If you don't know about Pianola's just go, learn& prepare to be amazed. The owner clearly lives & breathes "Player Pianos" and the story of their rise & fall is fascinating - but the best bit is definitely the performance of music "recorded" by virtuosi...More

Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll

working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
