Such an interesting and unusual Museum
Sep 2017 • Friends
I have visited many muséums in my life, but none is like this one ! Many unique antique organs are displayed in the museum such as a portative organ by Carlo Traeri from 1686, a positive organ by Agostino Traeri from 1756, a superb Sicilian organ of 1771 by Gaetano Platania, and many others… The museum also documents the technological, stylistic and taste evolution of the piano, an eminent symbol of Western musical civilization with an Italian harpsichord of the 16th century, an 18th century Italian grand piano , and three grand fortepiano.
And Dr Lorenzo Ronzoni , who has been at the origin of the museum and who guides the visit, will make you love it , even if you are not a musician! I When I can I always bring friends to the Museo degli Organi

Amazing sound from a portable organ! Wonderful owner/host
Sep 2017 • Couples
We sought out this small museum based on TripAdvisor reviews and we agree that it is a great experience! I think that only the owner, Dr. Ronzoni, staffs the museum and offers tours. That's good in one sense, because it would not be nearly as valuable to visit if a paid staff person, with no love of the subject matter, were present instead. He has a portable organ that disassembles into three pieces so it can be carried from site to site that produces an amazing sound quality for such a small (maybe 4-1/2 feet tall) instrument. My wife has been taking piano lessons for a couple of years and enjoyed the series of pianos from 19th-century Vienna as well.

Unique Venue

This museum of restored organs from all over Italy is the sole work of Dr Lorenzo Ronzoni who is clearly besotted by all the exhibits His enthusiasm draws you in and bewitches you
These exhibits are more than 400 years old and the love bestowed on the restorations is enthralling
In addition, there a number of pianos tracing the development of the instrument
I urge you to visit it is life affirming

Wonderful and different experience

Such a wonderful place with an equally wonderful guardian. I never thought i could be interested by the history of organs and pianos but the charming and passionate gentleman who restores the organs and old pianos infects you with his passion for how these instruments have developed over the centuries. Well worth a visit.

Amazing Museum and Owner
May 2015
We visited this museum quite by chance. We have been to Massa Marittima several times, but somehow missed this place. As we entered the museum we were greeted by Dr. Lorenzo Ronzoni, the owner. His English was good enough for us to understand him. He established, renovated the building space, acquired all of the musical insturments and restored all the instruments in the museum. We spent at least an hour or more with Dr. Ronzoni, and he explained the organs and pianos dates in history playing each to demonstrate their sound. Dr. Ronzoni was wonderful and we enjoyed meeting him as much as touring his museum.

church organs
Oct 2013 • Couples
The owner of this museum is completely charming. He has enthusiastically collected and restored church organs, harpsichords and grand pianos which are housed in a church he also owns and restores. He provides a guided tour in either Italian or German and plays short pieces of music along with his talk. A delightful and unusual experience
