|Facility:||Frederick Historic Piano Collection|
|Description:||Large collection of restored antique and historic pianos from varying eras.
Calling this a study center, rather than a museum, emphasizes the fact that this is a musicians' and music lovers' resource, illustrating the relationship of composers' works to aspects of sound and keyboard response typical of the pianos known to them. These are pianos to be heard, as well as seen.

|Hours:||The Study Center is open year-round to the public for tours on Thursdays from 10:00 to 4:00, on Saturdays from 1:00 to 4:00, and at other times by appointment.
Tours are available to individuals and groups, small groups being preferable so everyone can see and hear well. It is a good idea to contact the Frederick Collection in advance of a visit, even when planning a tour on a day when it is open, to avoid having too many people drop in at one time.
