Museo di Ka'i òrgel tells the story of the street organ in Curaçao and its development by the museum's founder, Serapio Pinedo.

Located in Lieliënberg, on the Western side of the island the museum shapes the unique history of this part of the island along with five other museums. Opened in 2016, the history told is combined with real life tools, street organs and artifacts from the life and work of the founder. There is also a hands-on workshop experience and a chance to try your hand at playing the street organ or show how well you can dance the European melodies and African rhythms carried by the instrument. Group visits as well as individual walk-ins are welcome Monday to Sunday from 9am to 2pm.
