The collection of mechanical musical instruments is stunning and our guide excellent. Not very accessible ( we had a lady in a wheelchair with us and she struggled). Well worth a visit which must be with a guide so he can demonstrate the instruments.

A great place to visit and find fun musically instruments and related devices. Avoid the time when ships are in port for a more leisurely viewing

I have visited this museum several times and always find it a wonderful experience. The instruments in the collection are varied and many real eye openers.

Well worth the visit I wish I could have spent more time there. We had a guided tour and during the tour the guide was able to operate some of the music machines. Not exactly hi fi but to think some of the machines were more than 200 years old and played piano, violin and other musical instruments was amazing.... More

This has to be the largest collection of music boxes and self-playing calliopes in existance. Some of the calliopes are an entire orchestra playing music from a paper tape. This place is a real treat for all.

This is a treasure trove of mechanical music making instruments dating back to the turn of the 20th century. Consisting of many rooms and various music making instruments, including hurdy-gurdy organs, grand pianos, and even a player piano with puppets and mechanized figures that play various instruments, or appear (much like a cuckoo clock), violins, etc. Because of the age...

This was a great museum, with lots to look at. The only way to look round is by a guided tour which was in English and German. Plenty of photo opportunities and demonstrations of music Well worth a visit.

I have actually been to this museum several times. This is a must do attraction in this wonderful town of Rudesheim. I can tell you that the first time there was one of thinking that there was not much in this building. To my surprise, there is a wealth of some of the most interesting musical instruments that are from... More

A unique museum dedicated to an amazing array of musical items from all over the world. Well worth a visit to understand how music has evolved in different sizes-huge room sized machines have transformed to our tiny machines of today,fascinating indeed.

A very charming exhibit with knowledgeable guide. It's really a kind of magical and enchanting experience that really takes you back in time. A tribute to man's ingenuity in the age before ipods. If you are in Rudesheim, you should visit here. Takes about an hour.
