There are accordions of all varieties, stretching back in time to the early 1800's. There was no tour available for us, as the curator books lessons during the stated visiting hours. Nonetheless, we found a number of interesting items which helped to place in context...More

This is the largest collection of accordions in the world - the world, folks! One extremely short-sighted reviewer said it was small? You won't see as many accordions, concertinas, bandoneons, history and memorabilia in one place anywhere else on the planet including the much-touted accordion...More

They want $10 a person to see accordions? It woulda been kind of fun to walk through there briefly, but when we saw how small it was, we laughed and said, "Thanks but no thanks." The whole arts building that houses it is smelly, too....More
