Geelvinck Pianola Museum

geelvinckWeekly concerts in the most intimate museum of Amsterdam.

In the heart of the famous Jordaan Quarter, a small museum survives against the tides of modernization and efficiency. The annual Amsterdam Museum Night even called the Pianola Museum the cutest museum of Amsterdam. The Geelvinck Pianola Museum is owner of over 30.000 player-piano rolls, one of the world’s largest collections. The pianola is the predecessor of the digital piano: you actually hear the historic piano being performed by a pianist from the period of the fin the siècle until the Roaring Twenties. Since then time seems to have stopped in this museum.


Every week there are chamber concerts held in the museum. All different styles like jazz, tango and classical music are being played on 19th century fortepiano’s. You can check the concert agenda on the website. The live-performances for silent movies are a real treat. Don’t miss this experience!

Opening times

The museum is open for individual visits on Sunday from 2pm - 5pm. If there's a concert at 5pm the museum closes at 4pm. Check the current opening hours before your visit on their website. There is a possibility to make a reservation for a group on every other day of the week. During the summer period the museum will be opened more days a week. 

The museum accepts different kinds of discount cards including the Iamsterdam City Pass.
