|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until October 10, 2021

This exhibition features rare ragtime sheet music from the world-renowned Guinness Collection and highlights a variety of mechanical musical instruments, such as the Seeburg “L” coin piano and an early, coin-operated “jukebox” containing Edison cylinder records.

The mechanical instruments, audio kiosks and provocative period illustrations on sheet music covers encourage visitors come away with a deeper appreciation of the art and the music of this uniquely American product.
