Those Beautiful Rags

This exhibition features rare ragtime sheet music from the world-renowned Guinness Collection, and highlights a variety of mechanical musical instruments, such as the Seeburg “L” coin piano, and an early, coin-operated “jukebox” containing Edison cylinder records. Available at interactive listening stations are examples of early “ragged” and syncopated arrangements performed by musical machines. The mechanical instruments, audio kiosks, and provocative period illustrations on sheet music covers encourage visitors come away with a deeper appreciation of the art and the music of this uniquely American product. Museum Hours: Wednesday – Sunday 11:00AM to 5:00PM. Admission may be purchased in advance online or by calling 973.971.3700 or in person at the door (credit card only).
