The harmonium was bought by Evald Põldmaa from Mullavere village after seeing the advertisement in the newspaper. The musical instrument that was in a really bad condition cost 500 roubles. The dignified harmonium was probably used in the canonical hours decades ago. The musical instrument was completely broken during the war, put together again later and painted with a thick brown paint. Evald Põldmaa got the musical instrument to ring again, removed the brown paint and ebonized the musical instrument.
The harmonium is the apple of the eye for the Põltsamaa Museum because it just demands that someone plays on it. Many difficult and easy pieces have been played on it in the museum.
