During the visit of the museum you will be told about the history, the beginnings of the small company created by Antonín Petrof in 1864, passing over all political and economical difficulties, until this year´s anniversary and the strong company situated among the best producers of pianos worldwide.

 

 In the museum you find some of very specific pieces, such as one old upright piano which plays itself thanks to the mechanism of a roll of paper with small holes and the air passing through, or an upright piano in a very modern design called „Magic egg“. You can also find here the „Piano bar“, borned with the idea of bringing piano music in bars and restaurants also without a need of the real person to play on it.
