It's not only an exhibition - it's a sound experience, to visit this museum of carefully collected and restored music machines. May it be the miniature chimes for the pocket or may it be the orchestra-like cabinet full of instruments. Never seen such a wonderful collection in halls from the 16th century.

We arrived at the museum past 2pm. When we entered the museum , we were greeted by the curator and was told that we had to wait until a party of four had to be formed. The curator told us that the museum would close at 4pm and there was no assurance that a party can be formed as it... More

Really enjoyed the tour through this museum of working "hands free" mechanical music machines. They've put lots of time and work into restoring some of these original pieces.

Very interesting tour of old mechanical music machines. The guide was very knowledgable. Value for money, situated in the market area of Rudeshiem.

During a week's cruise on the river Rhine, a tour party visited this museum on a shore excursion from the ship. We found the experience completely fascinating, and I would imagine that the collection it houses is entirely unique. Exhibits range from small musical boxes, through to Edison phonographs, on to very large automated instruments played by means of perforated... More

Our tour came as part of the Ama Waterways Rhine River cruise so we visited the museum past 9:00 in the evening. Half expecting to be bored during the tour, I was anything but. Set in an... More

A very original museum which brings you in the childhood and in the past when artisans were able to realise some miracle with their hands, it is a fantastic nostalgic moment with the mechanical music instruments really playing some amazing music. It is worth to visit it, a great moment of history and fun. And it is not expensive, a... More
