This is a really interesting and amusing collection of mechanical music instruments. We where totally overwhelmed! You buy tickets for a guided tour which give you the highlights of this great collection. Highly recommended!

The staff in this museum provide an excellent explanation of the many instruments on show. The type of instrument varied and they included -- sixteen instruments in one machine, six violins in another and a piano and drums in a third display. The final instrument was very small but capped off a great tour. I will not spoil it for... More

Long before we had musical synthesisers and electronic sounds you could still listen to a full orchestra without a musician in sight. It is amazing what mechanics would do with springs and pulleys and bits of string – and the sounds came from real instruments not recordings in these 18th and 19th century marvels. If you want to see rooms... More

Excellent place to visit, building filled with music machines which have been collected and restored over the years.The guide was very informative and played many of the machines for us, machines that we will probably never ever have the opportunity to see or hear again. Well worth ther visit and a must see attraction.

What a great place, just filled with some of the oldest, most unique, and most beautiful music machines I have ever seen. Went on a tour with a large group from a cruise. Sometimes it was a little difficult to see some of the items up close but this was not the fault of the museum, just the way our... More

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.
