The Hamanako Orgel Museum is right across the ropeway from the PalPal amusement park, so I recommend getting the Hamanako 2-Day Pass, which gives you unlimited rides on the ropeway, buses, trains, and cruises, plus a discount on your admission to the museum. Due to its proximity to PalPal, it's a good place to stop in if you're bringing your kids to the amusement park. The music box building is probably the star attraction, in my opinion. Since all of the songs are by Japanese artists, unless you're familiar with J-pop and/or can read Katakana, you may have to just pick a couple at random and see which sounds good - you can preview the songs before you build. Confusingly, music boxes and other items can be purchased from the gift shop via credit card, but the admission tickets are cash only. It’s worth noting that the third floor gallery is not accessible by elevator, but all other floors are.

Presentations at the Orgel Museum are held twice per hour, with each lasting approximately 20 minutes. The shows are interesting and educational. Each show would present different instruments (3 per show), and visitors can attend as many shows as they wish. However, presentations are only available in Japanese. The presentation style and seating are also a bit outdated.

Maybe my favorite place in Hamamatsu. Definitely a go! And the staff is so adorable, I would cry if I hear that the museum closes or anything
