The world’s largest museum for vintage and not-quite-so-vintage keyboards—the EBOARDMUSEUM—grew from a humble furnishings store.
Since October 2007, this impressive building in the center of Klagenfurt on the outskirts of the trade fair grounds—and a stone’s throw from Lake Wörthersee—has been fitted out with the greatest electronic musical instruments of the last 100 years.
The Largest Lounge in Austria
Our interior doesn’t just commemorate the history of this amazing building. According to our concert-goers, it’s also the largest and most laid-back lounge in Austria.
Plenty of parking directly in front of the museum entrance, or these beautiful trees? We love and appreciate them both!
A Short Tour Through the EBOARDMUSEUM
The still unparalleled success story of electronic musical instruments began in 1934 with this Hammond A (front left). And thanks to this tallboy at the back, almost everything still revolves around the Leslie …
One of these three Hammond belonged to a world-famous jazz rock formation. But we don't want to reveal more at this point... Well, persuaded: The setlist of their very last concert is also on display in the EBOARDMUSEUM!
Elaborate LaFleur adaptations like this one paved the way for infamous varieties of Hammond organs from as early as the 1940s, which were still filled with smoke at the time.
This view from the first floor features a mix of legendary eboards from Korg, Farfisa, and Yamaha, as well as more and more original arrangements of famous musicians on occasion!
The prototypes and full success story of the Hohner clavinet, packed together into a few square feet.
A small preview of the synthesizer section: the wall of fame!
Four copies of probably the most influential synthesizer of all time. Minimoog fo(u)rever!!!
It’s definitely not an eboard. But without this Blüthner grand piano, the EBOARDMUSEUM would most likely never exist. Find out more on our museum tours.
Wow! Magnificently crafted guitars like this Klira melt the heart of any aficionado right away—even those with more well-refined tastes :-)
This incredibly rare pneumatically powered self-playing Hammond BA Player Organ, which was only manufactured for a few months in 1938, was flown in several years ago from New York.
The plane has been scrapped and the captain has retired since then, but you can still listen to the Hammond here in our museum :-)
