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. Our popular 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 hosts a wide variety of concerts, films and dances throughout the year, and makes a unique and flexible event venue for hire.
TEMPORARY CLOSURE NOTICE
As a result of the advice given to the UK by the Prime Minister, the Trustees of the Musical Museum have made the decision to cancel all public events, admissions and conservation activities: the Museum is currently closed.
Although this has been drastic and difficult, the well-being of our staff, volunteers and visitors is absolutely paramount. We will re-open as soon as it is deemed safe to do so, and will update this site should circumstances change and as the situation evolves. In the meantime we urge everyone to follow the Government Guidelines available here.
Our small Museum is totally dependent on income from visitors, events and donations. Closing our doors is a very serious matter with a potentially catastrophic financial impact. Please consider making a donation via our web site in lieu of attending - your support could make a real difference.
