The Accordion Museum in Montmagny, Canada traces the history of the accordion and its influence on Quebec culture through instruments, photos and recordings. Asia is also well represented with instruments that show the use of the free reed (call them ancient ancestors of the accordion) that date back over 4,000 years. The town even has an Accordion Festival every year. Surprisingly, this isn’t the world’s only accordion museum. There’s one in San Francisco, Wisconsin, Cleveland, New York City, Italy (not little, the original big one), Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Scotland and supposedly Russia and France (but these last two seem to be closed or non-existent on the interwebs). Geez…who knew accordions were such a thing? Can you imagine doing a world tour where you just visit accordion collections?
