Fats Domino's Waterlogged Piano

Fat's Domino's Waterlogged Piano was restored by the Louisiana State Museum and the Louisiana Museum Foundation by removing the mold, mildew, and rust (which required a complete disassembly). The restored instrument now resides in an exhibit about music at the Old U.S. Mint. In addition, you can see instruments played by Dr. John and Louis Armstrong.
