Not worth the time unless pianos turn you on. Gulangyu island itself is worth traveling to if you have a spare day.

This museum is a rarity anywhere but especially in China. They have some of the most unique and rare pianos that I have ever seen. Especially good for kids or anyone interested in musical instruments.

To be honest, I didn't expect much of it, but was surprised by the great variety of piano's. From some of them I even didn't know that it existed. We quite enjoyed this museum and the walk towards it.

I'm a pianist, so I'm already biased about the subject matter. But this motley collection of pianos is really quite amazing, especially in China. So many old European pianos came to rest in Gulangyu!

This is a place where you could see almost a 100 different pianos collection. From a weird shape to the smallest piano, from ordinary to a grand piano. Recommended for those who played the piano.

Even if you are not a piano buff, this place is very interesting. From big Grand Pianos to very small one, there is something for everyone. My favorite was a piano that sat in a corner! So interesting.
