Bayernhof Music Museum - Review

The famous Bayernhof Music Museum is located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It features an enviable collection of automated music instruments from the 19th and 20th Century. A unique museum in its own right, the 19,000 square foot museum contains a large number of music boxes, other fascinating instruments and a few rare musical items as well. The building in itself provides for a fascinating journey, as guests pass from room to room, often through hidden doors and secret passages!

Bayernhof is the name of the mansion itself, which is a German styled $4.2 million project completed in 1982. There are many instruments in the museum, ranging from the small roll- played toy saxophone, to a gigantic Seeburg Pipe Organ Orchestra. However, the museum’s real treasure is some of the rarer items on show, which are very difficult to find around the world. These include the Wurlitzer Automatic Harp, and the fascinating Encore Automatic Banjo, both of which have to be seen to be believed! They also have a number of pianos, in different shapes and sizes.

  • The house also contains a rooftop observatory, an indoor cave, a swimming pool with a 10-foot (3.0 m) waterfall, 10 fireplaces, eight full baths, which are all part of the private residence of Charles Brown III.
  • The Bayernhof mansion provides a dramatic and picturesque overlook, situated over 500 feet above the Allegheny River Valley.

Although the mansion looks deceptively quaint, the collection it houses is amazingly impressive, especially for those who listen to music with a passion. Be sure to make the trip out to this wonderful attraction when you visit Pittsburgh.

Bayernhof Music Museum, Pittsburgh Reviews

  • I have been on this tour several times and it's still great! It is a very unique experience and regardless of your interests, I'm sure you will enjoy it too! Also, it's a great place for a date because it's not very expensive and gives you something interesting to talk about at dinner afterward!

  • I live off eat museums. This place is sort of like House on the Rock but on a smaller scale. Do yourself a favor and visit.

  • I and four friends recently visited this museum, and everyone loved it. The tour was a bit over 2 hours and the very congenial host told many interesting stories about the house and it's builder. He also got everyone involved by asking them questions and what they thought about certain aspects of the museum. And it is definitely a bargain at only $10. We plan to visit again.

  • So much fun! won't spoil it for you, though...

  • I've been here twice and would gladly return any day. There's nothing else like this experience, from the musical instruments, the whimsy of the mansion and the knowledgeable guide. This is an essential stop if you're visiting the city, or if you're looking to try something outside the typical run-of-the-mill museum experience.
