The History of Music Reproduction - Museum & Concert Venue at Kew Bridge, London


The Musical Museum tells the changing story of how people have captured and listened to music over the last four centuries. From tiny music boxes to the Mighty Wurlitzer theatre organ in our concert hall, the collection includes an impressive array of instruments and inventions, including reproducing pianos, orchestrions, self-playing violins, pipe organs, gramophones & synthesizers. Find out how music was recorded and reproduced, see and hear them in action.  

Located near Kew Bridge, Brentford, we're a 5-star rated attraction in Greater London. We offer guided tours and a variety of LIVE concerts and other events, complete with new social distancing (but still social!) arrangements. Our café has views over the river, there's a small car park, and we're easily accessible via public transport. The Museum's theatre space also makes a unique, safe and flexible venue for hire.

Our next video will feature Donald Mackenzie at the console of the Mighty Wurlitzer for a special St. Andrew's Day concert at 19:00 GMT on the 30th November. Subscribe to our YouTube channel or become a Patreon member to find out more, support the Musical Museum and stay up to date.


Our next LIVE EVENT is the Musical Museum Christmas Extravaganza with our Musical Director Chris Barber (and friends!) on 13th December at 15:00 GMT. Tickets are strictly limited, available now via Eventbright:


The Museum is temporarily CLOSED to visitors due to COVID19 restrictions

We have been working hard to prepare the Museum to re-open safely, which includes significant changes and updates to our ground floor layout and timed admission tickets to allow us to maintain social distancing. Unfortunately because of the new restrictions imposed by the UK Government we are temporarily closed once more, until the national lockdown is lifted and it is safe for us to welcome visitors again. This has removed our only source of operating income - our small charity is totally dependent on income from visitors, events and donations. Please consider making a one-off donation via PayPal  or subscribe with Patreon to support the Museum and access news, live events and more. We really appreciate your support at this difficult time.
