The Bandoneon Museum

Bando-museum_480_trans.png

The increasing interest in bandoneons during the last years may be helpful to promote this instrument. The town hall recognized the need of creating a bandoneon museum. In spite of the actual strong economic problems which passes the region, Carlsfeld made it possible to occupy several people working on this task. They collect several specimens and sheet music which is hosted for the moment by the local grammar school which makes it impossible to allow public traffic. After solving the uncertain property conditions of the original Alfred Arnold house which is expected to be the future museum, the new institution may be established.

Meanwhile Mr. Wallschl├Ąger built up a small private museum located in Carlsfeld, Hauptstrasse 7, where you can visit his collection. He will give detailed information about the bandoneon history. The front of his house is decorated with a large painting showing a bandoneon player.
