A MUSEUM THAT IS MUSIC TO YOUR EARS.
Founded in 1983, the Music House Museum in Williamsburg, near Traverse City, was listed as one of the "10 Good Reasons to Visit the Lower Peninsula" by Forbes.com. Located in a former dairy barn, the museum is home to music boxes, early radios, pianos, organs, and much more. The "Amaryllis," a 1922 Theofiel Mortier dance organ from Belgium, is one of the museum's most notable items and has been recently restored. As you explore the museum, you will learn how music has changed over the years, in addition to seeing and hearing instruments from the late 1700s to the 1950s.
