A concept for the new permanent exhibition was developed together with Impuls Design agency from Hamburg. Now part of the Eric Feller Collection will be permanently accessible to the public alongside the important Kellinghusen faience from the 18th and 19th centuries. The total project for the museum amounts to almost 4 million euros.


In a modern staging, the development of keyboard instruments from the early 17th to the 19th century can be seen. In addition to harpsichords, clavichords, square pianos and fortepianos, an early tangent grand piano is also on display. The instruments are accessible to visitors via various audio and video stations. In addition to the permanent exhibition, special exhibitions on various topics are held regularly. In addition, the museum hosts events in which the historical keyboard instruments are used for concerts.
