Located within Shuzhuang Garden, Xiamen Piano Museum is shaped like the piano keyboard.


The two-part museum (Museum I and Museum II) showcases more than one hundred vintage pianos collected from around the world by the patriotic overseas Chinese Hu Youyi.



Among the exhibits are a rare gold-plated piano, the world’s first rectangular piano, the world’s oldest and largest upright piano, an ancient hand-operated piano, a century-old foot-pedaled automatically-playing piano, and an ancient piano with eight pedals.


The tinkling sound of pianos adds to the romantic atmosphere on Gulangyu, an island famous for its musical heritage.
