Geelvinck Early Piano Museum Amsterdam: Haarlemmerhouttuinen 47 - D, 1013 GM Amsterdam

Since 2013, Museum Geelvinck has rented part of the catacombs of the Posthoornkerk. It was originally planned that the museum, in collaboration with Stadsherstel (owner of the church), would develop a new music stage for historic pianos in the nave of the Posthoornkerk. A rehearsal space was created in the catacombs. Students from the Pianoforte department of the Conservatorium of Amsterdam are taught here on historic pianos. A modest depot space has also been created.

Over the years, connoisseurs of the early piano have found their way to this ‘hidden treasure’ in Amsterdam. The most important (especially early) gems from the collection are now in this location of our museum. Some of the instruments are playable. Up-and-coming talent and established musicians regularly use the rehearsal space. Every now and then there are recordings (including for CDs).

From May 2020, the Geelvinck Early Piano Museum was open to the public on a limited scale (musical tours for small groups by appointment). Unfortunately, due to Corona, this opening had to be postponed for the time being.
