The  Museum is based on the private collection of Tauno Ylönen and was opened to the public in 1993. At present, there are almost two hundred accordions on display. A harmonica section of over 50 instruments was added to the museum in 2001. The museum also display various items related to accordions and a gallery of photographs and prizes.
