  • You'll fall in love with the place by the time you reach the ticket office, with its faithfully recreated 1900 decor.

Apparently this collection is just the tip of the iceberg, too, they have thousands of piano rolls and hundreds of pianolas in storage and the very knowledgeable lady who talked us through the collection with great enthusiasm said they also do regular recitals and coffee morning concerts.
