We had a few hours to kill before our meal. It was a dark and wet November late afternoon and we weren't really interested in visiting a music museum, but what else was there to do? We bought our tickets and went on the guided tour, something I usually hate. However, the tour was presented so nicely and was so... More

Tucked away on a small street, is an amazing collection of musical machines. The variety of different machines, with so many still functioning and making music, is outstanding. Every room in the building is filled with marvels of mechanical genius. These are far more than a simple wind up music box. if you can appreciate the skills needed to make... More

If you are in the slightest musical/mechanical/ curious-minded then this is a strangely unmissable experience. While some of the many bussed and boated here might loathe the experience, I would challenge anyone to say it was unforgettable. From the weird and wonderful ladies who conduct the tour (how do they maintain such enthusiasm?) to the wonderfully kitsch/ colourful/ ingenious musical... More

Totally knocked out by this place. A mass working mechanical musical devices which sound wonderful whilst looking amazing. Beautifully presented and the guides show you around with great enthusiasm.

There are guided tours of this museum which is located in the beautiful town of Rudesheim, we visited in Autumn and the colours were amazing. The organ in the museum is a sight to behold and when its played the world stops. I recommend you do a guided tour and make sure it includes a concert of the organs.

This is one of the best museums ever put together with such a huge variety of exclusive, exquisite and amazingly large mechanical musical instruments. Best I have seen of its kind.

What a delightful place to spend an hour or so. History oozes from the walls and the exhibits are fascinating. The guides are very enthusiastic and the audio treats are sensational. Loved every moment of our visit

What a delightful museum and we were taken by our guide who was very interesting and spoke in English for us. The instruments were fantastic and we loved every minute of the visit.
