The piano from "Big" may have been at the Planet Hollywood restaurant in New York, but is now apparently currently at the 'Please Touch' Museum in Philly.

But... Someone else wrote in to say that "If you're talking about the big piano that they jump on then it is still at FAO Schwartz in NYC. Last time I was there the toy store staff did regular shows playing Chopsticks on the piano just like the movie."
