My wife & I toured this delightful, unusual, highly personal museum as part of a riverboat cruise on Wednesday 4/30. We didn't know what to expect & were a bit puzzled at the start of our visit. The charming young lady who was our tour guide quickly explained that we were going to see & hear a small part of... More

The museum has an excellent collection of musical automatons, many in working order. The tour in English involved seeing and hearing many of the exhibits in action. Well worth a visit.

Inside this small museum there is a vast array of different musical items. I saw Edison gramophones, player pianos, musical toys of all shapes and sizes, toy carousels, pipe organs, musical boxes and instruments which were all intriquing. I also loved the murals and ceiling paintings in the old part of the museum. Great for a visit.

We went here on a tour off of an Avalon River Cruise and I honestly went only because it was included. The tour turned into an enjoyable hour or so of seeing and hearing a collection of very unique mechanical music boxes/instruments/and calliopes. What a treat. It is definitely worth the visit if you are nearby.

We arrived just in time to join a conducted tour of this amazing collection of mechanical musical instruments. The lady who took us round was very informative and was able to show us how everything worked. A joy for me was looking at the murals and ceiling paintings in the oldest part of the museum. This certainly was one of... More

A lot of interesting instruments from a bygone age showing the ingenuity of the inventors - The local 'Noddy Tra\in' drops you at the door, and lets you walk back down via the Drosselgasse enjoying the atmosphere as you go - worth a visit

During our recent, May/June 2014, European River Tour with APT on the Amabella we were pleased to have this wonderful museum as a place to visit on our visit to Rudesheim. We were not disappointed , the presentation , ambiance, location, building and most of all the wonderful presentation of restored and extremely rare mechanical music apparatus. Mark this down...

This is a one of a kind display of mechanical music machines that have been collected and restored to working condition. Remember that Old Carousel Music; well you can hear it again with moving animated characters preforming the music. Original Edison Gramophones and player pianos all in Prime working condition. Your visit will only last 30 minutes but when in... More

To think we have came so far in such a relatively short time in playing and recording music. Our guide was very knowledgeable and looked and sounded like she loved her job. Some of the instruments are fascinating the way they work let alone how anybody would have an idea for their design. Having regard to the ages of some... More

Now, I'm not one for museums, but, as we were guided round by a well spoken gentleman, I marvelled at the many pieces of incitement that has brought us to our music today. Very informative, and definitely interested me a lot. Danke.
