The Cunningham Piano Factory Tour

The Cunningham Piano Factory Tour

Piano Factory Tour With Children's

One of Philadelphia’s best kept secrets is the free Cunningham Piano factory tour at our restoration facilities in Germantown. This is a great way to go behind the scenes of Philadelphia’s oldest and most respected piano factory and discover all the complex parts and craftsmanship that go into a piano. We recently hosted a group of 6th graders from Germantown Friends school. Tim Oliver, one of the co-owners of Cunningham Piano Company, led the tour and showed the students a variety of pianos in different states of restoration and assembly, from soundboard construction, to cast iron frame removal, keyboard action work, our custom soundboard press, and our refinishing department. As a result, the students gained a better understanding not only of the high level of craftsmanship, but also the physics of piano acoustics.

If you’d like to take a tour of the Cunningham Piano Company’s restoration facility, get in touch with us through our website at CunninghamPiano.com/Visit and select the “Factory Tour” option.
