Seeing working pieces over 100 years old was wonderful. The creativity of man is impressive when you hear these mechanical machines produce music. This was the ultimate back then. What a great experience.

I thought this excursion from our riverboat on the Rhine was going to be kind of ho hum. So I was pleasantly surprised to find this place absolutely delightful! A guide took us through the building, which in itself was interesting, and turned on each instrument. She wore gloves to protect these fragile and amazing pieces of music and art.... More

Siegfried's mechanical Instrument Museum is one of the " must do's " in Rudesheim. (The other is the cable car ride to the Niederwald monument.) Siegfreid's has an incredible collection of self playing musical instruments, varying from simple wind-up music boxes, to huge cabinets, comprising almost a full orchestra, with all the instruments being played via mechanical levers, pedals, bows...

Our disappointment with this museum may be due to our erroneous expectations. From reading other reviews and descriptions, we thought this would showcase DIFFERENT instruments playing music mechanically. Instead, what we saw were many different kinds of mechanical music boxes...large, small, fancy, and plain...but music boxes nonetheless. The building itself was much more interesting to us as it still has... More

We arrived a little late for the tour but were advised to catch it up as it had only just started. The tour was in German but we were given an English leaflet that copied exactly the tour guide. Our guide was friendly and as soon as she realised we were English translated for us as we went around. She... More

The tour was pretty short (only took 35 min) but very interesting and some of the musical mechanic instruments were so amazing that i couldn't stop smiling. A nice thing to do in the very touristic Ruedesheim.

The title really says it - but this was a highlight of the visit to Rudesheim. Incredible range of instruments in a large house/museum, and a terrific guide.

Very interesting and very entertaining place. Historical, yet fun and exhilirating. The surrounding town is also pleasant, although, personally, I don't like Christmas shops all year round.
