My husband and I visited this little museum today. I know it will be a highlight of our trip to Kanazawa. There were so many beautiful music players. There is very little English signage, but that which is there is helpful. We spent close to...More
It isn't everyday that you get to hear phonographs, and this museum provides that opportunity. In addition to seeing the phonographs themselves, there is a 30 minute session that involves playing recordings on different phonographs (time was at 11:00, 2:00 and 4:00 when we visited),...More
