    Having been to old "keyboard museum" a couple of times I was looking forward to visiting the new venue. It is spectacular. Beautiful venue , many interactive displays, great tour. Everything a "modern Museum" should be. Just miss the old place - a bit dingy, less interactive

    Pretty interesting museum. Lots of interactive stuff: piano’s guitars, a voice booth (which says you’re a tenor no matter how high you sing) and also some really peculiar instruments. You can spend about two, three hours tops here.

    Hello :) Thanks for stopping by and leaving us a reivew! A lot of those "peculiar instruments" are used by artists for recording. You can see a few demonstrated during our Backstage Pass Tour only done on Sundays. All the best,

    I love playing music, and while some exhibits were a bit boring, there was some amazing displays that were very interactive. Go if you have a passion and love for music.

    This is a wonderful place to visit for a few hours. My teenagers loved all the interactive music stations and they had lots to see, read and learn about Canadian Music. Great building and very well kept/clean. We had a snack at the little cafe on the main floor before starting

    We weren't sure what to expect, then disappointed that on first floor it seemed all to be focussed on country music, but decided to start on 5th floor and work our way down. Wow, were we wrong! It was not all country, but fascinating and extremely well done. Other major cities
