World of Accordions Museum

Over 1,300 accordions and memorabilia are displayed in a beautiful church basement. If you're lucky, Dr. Helmi Harrington will guide you on a tour. Well worth a stop even if you're not a fan of the music. These are some dazzling instruments in an interesting setting.

World of Accordions Museum

A true gem - I don't imagine there is any place like it in the world. The owner shares her collection of over 1,000 accordions, concertinas and some of their unique "relatives," along with many other accordion and music related items. The museum is housed in a beautiful old church with a wonderful concert hall for performances. This place is worth a special trip to Superior, WI. Be sure to check and see if they will be open during your trip to the area - usually they are only open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays from 10:00-2:00.

The life's work of Helmi Harrington. The World of Accordions is not only a museum, but also a repair shop, technician's school, and concert hall. Oct. 2014: Photo added.
