The Musical Museum tells the fascinating 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 in Brentford (and not far from Kew Gardens), 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 and live streaming facilities also make us a unique, safe and flexible venue for hire.
Covid-19 Status Update - March 2021
Unfortunately the Musical Museum remains closed to visitors due to the lockdown. We are continuing with live streaming of events without a physical audience, and we hope to re-open for tours in May 2021.
The Musical Museum is a small charity, totally dependent on income from visitors, events and donations; closing to the public has a major impact on us. Please consider donating if you can. We appreciate your support at this difficult time.
