A mother polar bear naps contentedly with her cub in the lobby outside Innovation Road. They look just like the real thing, but in fact were made from scratch by skilled artisans, and thus evoke the precision of Yamaha manufacturing. What better place for a picture than in front of this adorable, relaxed pair? Take one in front of the Innovation Road logo beside the entrance, too. The logo signifies Yamaha’s commitment to continuing to build from the struggles of the past to clear a path toward the future with people the world over, and is an apt indicator of the excitement and wonder that await in the world of Yamaha within.

The first thing you see when you enter the museum is Key Between People, a futuristic white piano with vivid images projected atop its surface. Be sure to get a picture of yourself with the images, which change when the keys are played. Next up is the CFX, the beloved full concert grand piano that makes anyone who sits at it feel like a professional pianist. Make your way to the Bösendorfer, a manufacturer known as the pride of Vienna. The underside of its lid features a replica of a magnificent Gustav Klimt painting.
