Overview
More
Set out as a typical Australian Village of late 1800's the Darnum Musical Village is home to over 300 entertaining instruments where stunning panoramic view compliment the beautiful village gardens. Inside the historical buildings you will find instruments as rare and old as the Collard & Collard Square Grand Piano built in 1827 and the authentic 1878 William Anderson Pipe Organ. The visitor has the opportunity to hear a demonstration on any working instrument, or even play themselves! Entering the workshop on a tour of the Village you will find old tools of the trade. You can see Albert's highly skilled staff repairing and renovating pianos and other antique instruments. Watch the piano tuners at work and see the art of French Polishing. Take in the atmosphere of a by-gone era and witness the dedication taken to build up the village.

A great place to enjoy with markets or listening to the music, so much happening here wouldnt know what to expect from one day to the next. Very entertaining, sometimes there is a show on.

Great stop, so much to see here. If you are into music instruments, this is the place for you. They take you through all the displays. Also offer group lunches if required.
