The International Harp Museum houses a wonderful collection of harps, from the elegantly slender single action instruments of the 17th century to the magnificent concert grands of today.
Many of the harps in the collection are playable which allows you the opportunity of hearing, first hand, what a harp from the era of Marie Antoinette sounds like.
View up close an early Erard or perhaps the disassembled action of a Wurlitzer from the 1920's. See the very first Salvi ever created or run your fingers across the strings of the original Art Nouveau Style 11 by Lyon and Healy.
The harps in the IHM collection have originated from such countries as France, England, Italy, Germany, Ireland and the United States. Many of these instruments are one of a kind and are rare masterpieces of art, craftsmanship and engineering.
The International Harp Museum also archives an extensive collection of original manuscripts, blueprints, recordings, photos, scrapbooks, concert programs, letters and many other materials pertaining to harps and harpists. The IHM Archive is an ongoing project that is continually growing and expanding and we gratefully welcome any new additions.
We are very proud of our distinction as the only museum in the United States devoted completely to the harp and hope you enjoy experiencing the collection as much as we enjoy presenting it to you.
The International Harp Museum is located in a charming 1920's Mediterranean villa in downtown Orlando's historic district.
